Back from Morocco
I hurt my knee running the first day but did manage a 5 mile hike in the Atlas Mountains. But then did no workouts. So I feel bloated (there was lots of food of course).
But as with all travel, I always feel behind when I return. So I use an email management technique to ease my email stress. It is based on the old time management principle - touch each piece of paper only once.
What I do is allocate 2 minutes maximum per email (most take less than a minute). If I can complete it in less than 2 minutes, I deal with it completely. It requires focus on just one at a time. Working with a full email in box is a bit like working at a messy desk - everything is screaming "do me, do me".
In busy times, I also sometimes spend 10 minutes doing emergency scanning. For this, I allow only 5 seconds per email. This reduces stress because I know nothing is burning.
By the time I spend even half a day, I will have weeded the emails that take more than 2 minutes down to only about 40 emails - much less daunting than before I started.
