I would like to share my way of using Outlook.
Some months ago I decided to find a better way and I found my way by applying the principles found in GTD by Allen and Total Workday Control by Linenberger. It was a great change for me.
As no training or book was available in French. I decided to train my directs with it. Well, it was life changing.
Here are the general principles.
Basic principles :
1) turn off any alert
2) plan E-mail reading
3) empty Inbox = free mind
4) read E-mail = manage it = out of Inbox
5) GTD principle applied to E-mails
6) Task management
7) Delegation with tasks
8° Task lists
10) Calendar management
In order not to have too long posts, I will then detail in the following posts.
If you need details, ask me for.
I would like to know your comments about it and share ideas.
