gtd for gmail

  • Aggressively use Priority Inbox, and train it for what email is important vs. not
  • Do not use folders - search instead
  • Processing gmail:
    • Delete/Archive - anything that has no place in your life now or in the future - not filing and sorting, just toss & search.
    • Delegate - probably requires a 'check & see' action for you
    • Respond - ninja move to reply with 5 or fewer sentences
    • Defer - thorny, but appropriate if you need more information to respond. Put in "To respond" folder - not leave in inbox. Try to empty that every day
    • Do - liberate activity from your inbox, if it can be done now, do it. Don't let stuff sit around and build up. Choose your verbs and honor those.
