  • Processing

    I think it's personal but... How many times a day do you process your INs to feel comfortable with new options coming at you? I try to do it once a day but it turns to be minimum two or three times (morning email only, before leaving the office all and before going to bed at home all as well).

    regards,
    Eugene.

    Processing

    I've cut this down to once a day for the paper in tray and 3x a day for email.

    Email is the real killer for me - it needs discipline to stay clear until processing time.

      At home, once a day for paper and twice a day for email. At work, once a day for paper and four times a day for email. That's approximate; my home paper inbox sometimes doesn't get processed for a day or two.

      I'll often check work email six or eight times a day, as a diversion from real work. This is not a good habit. If I am confronted with a lot of work, I check about four times a day.

        Paper based, once a day and sometimes I end up skipping a day and letting it build up. I skim email subjects for landmines every 40 minutes or so and actually read and process around 4 times during the day.

          It most certainly is personal but I do it once a day. Like many people now a days I do check email a few times a day but this is strictly emergency scanning. If I convince myself that it can't wait until the moning, I'll answer the email but I don't process it or the reply until the morning.

            At least two or three times a day, since most of my stuff is digitalized its always available to me in a form of a note on my blackberry using a great app called Ideamatrix, what I like about this is that at work I can view my notes and task on a web interface which is very cool and its syncs over the air back to my blackberry, timeframe, early morning, mid day, and night time.
