Your inbox isn’t the world’s todo list

Wes Bos probably gets more email than most. So, if his Breakout Email Management System works for him, it should work for almost anyone.

A lot of what he has to say mirrors the Getting Things Done methodology. My own task management system is a sort of corrupted version of GTD, but I still subscribe to one of the main tenets: Don’t use email as a TODO list.

To that end, I wrote about about getting things done with Outlook over 10 years ago*, and still follow most of that advice today–when I’m forced to use Outlook anyway.

* 10 years, WTF?
