One Man & His Blog

Mail in Mountain Lion

I’ve read again and again over the years, that reading your e-mail as the first task in your working day is the wrong thing to do. You should dive into a few tasks, do something directly productive first, and then switch back to the in-box.

I am, for at least some of the week, a home worker at the moment, and that requires discipline (especially with the bundle of cute that is young Hazel to distract me each morning). I’m going to try an add this discipline – that of doing a little easily mooring blogging before I dive into other things – as my day’s “start point”. It probably won’t happen at weekends, as I’m on full-time Hazel duty then, but during the working week, expect a little light bloggage from me.

This is something of a follow-on from Steph’s back to blogging project. That helped me get back into the blogging swing – this, I hope, will help me hack my productivity.
