One of the most powerful productivity techniques I’ve employed over the years is regularly hitting inbox zero
We’re really pleased at Revv to be working with Ari Meisel to help people get there.
Ari has a powerful approach to productivity and health – including having recovered from a supposedly ‘incurable’ disease using self quantification and logic.
Together we are launching an Inbox Zero for Gmail program.
“Having a clean inbox is essential to getting more done and freeing up your time so you can do more of the things you want to do.
Over the next 10 days, you’ll get Gmail set up so every email that hits your inbox is important & actionable and (more importantly) you’ll practice clearing your inbox every day.”
We’ve got limited slots for this pilot. Check it out now!
I just hit Inbox Zero again minutes ago – and it feels wonderful
I’ve been busy lately. Booting up a startup will do that.
And I’ve noticed how expensive busy is.
I first noticed the literal cash meaning of this. When I wasn’t busy – I’d cook meals at home and have coffee in the office.
Busy led to meals out, takeout, and numerous $3 espressos. Busy led to a $200 tow.
Busy means fewer workouts, more dietary slips.
Too busy to meditate for the last week.
Too busy to spend quality time with my friends and family.
Busy is a trap.
It would be very easy to justify this behavior. Startups are busy. Isn’t that just the way of things?
Ultimately busy will lead to lower energy, poor relationships, stalled spiritual progress.
Busy spends time on the wrong things and makes more mistakes.
No good for me, no good for Revv, no good for the Universe.
For now I’m being soft on myself. I got busy, things slipped. No big deal. Happens.
Time to get back to being smart. And less busy.
