You get email. Some make you uncomfortable.
"Why this project? Why now? What do all of these things mean? Oh crap, is this new email related to another project?"
Sounds familiar? Jeff Shell does a great job in his post conveying the 'email anxiety' we all sometimes face. An email comes in and for no good reason your stress level all of a sudden goes up by 200%. Jeff is not only reflecting about the non-sense of this feeling but also how OmniFocus helps him remain calm and relaxed in these situation as it provides a reliable backbone to him.
- It's my job to deal with this stuff. There was no bad news or anything here.
- I didn't need to deal with it immediately.
- I didn't even need to read every email immediately.
- I didn't have worry about process or organization. I have OmniFocus.
It's not the email, it's you after all.
