Reflect & Review Q&A

Many folks downloaded the checklist from our last episode on reviews. Today, we’re going to run through some of your feedback and help calm even more chaos.

A big piece of feedback that came from the last episode was “what if I’m ALREADY experiencing overwhelm?” It’s important to remember that it’s okay to do one thing. It could be a tiny action. That quick act turns into a quick win, and that builds momentum.

Another aspect that came up was about updating software. It’s SO important to update your software before it forces you to. Imagine jumping into an important meeting, but in order to join, you have to update your software. Alleviate those horrible pop-ups at the worst time.

Email organization came up a lot from the last episode. Consider building folders with different urgencies. 1a is most urgent, 1b less so, etc. This allows you to gauge what it’ll take to get to those emails and how urgently you should. Secondly, archive emails–let emails live somewhere else than your inbox. Then, create a “delete” folder–this allows you to review everything you’ve marked for deletion without risking an accidental loss of important info. Add on to this with an “unsubscribe” section. Finally, have an “interesting” folder for emails you want to come back to.
