Resolve to Get Tasks and Email Under Control in 2023

You CAN Get Tasks and Email Under Control

It’s January again, and the new year’s resolution season is upon us. So, let’s resolve to get tasks and email under control.

It’s good to tackle both tasks and email together since, in many businesses, up to 90% of new tasks arrive by email. Tackling tasks, if done right, will get email under control.

It Simply Takes 4 Steps to Move this Forward

1. Commitment: make a commitment to reach that control. Without that, the next 3 steps won’t happen.

2. Technology: make a small commitment in new technology—you might need a new task management app or email management tool. On a Mac I recommend the Things app for tasks; you can use any email system with Things. On a Windows PC, Microsoft Outlook is great. Todoist is a good app for both.

But an app is useless without the next point.

3. Methodology: this is key, you must understand that having the right task and email methodology in place is what makes this work. I am biased of course, but I’ve never found a methodology that works better than the MYN, 1MTD, and Outlook Ninja methodologies.

See this short video that explains how my methodologies are different, and which you should use.

4. A Little Training: the above steps can’t be achieved by simply loading a new app on your smartphone. Too many of us try that easy way out but fail. Rather, it takes at least a little training to put the methodology in place, and to learn how to apply that methodology to technology (we show which apps and software to use). Of course, that’s my specialty: self-study video training to do just that.

See my store page for a list of those video courses. They are easy to use and will get you going quickly.

Resolve to do this today!

    Hello Michael,
    I follow your 1MTD plus a little bit of MYN since years and it is the only system that works for me. I also use Microsoft To Do after viewing your course. Thank you very much!
    I also appreciate your older blog posts e. g. about how to restart the system after it got out of control.
    Perhaps you could make a post about how to handle the defer-to-review list best. I work with future due dates so that I don’t have to review the whole list every week. But still, it is a Monday morning chore that kills my productivity and motivation, mainly because many of the tasks are either something I’d like to do (but don’t find the time) or I have postponed for a long time and feel guilty about it. I have the rule to delete 10% of the reviewed tasks so that it doesn’t grow too much, but still reviewing it is a task that I dislike most.

    Great post! I’ve been using Beetv for a few months now and it’s been a lifesaver.
