This small investment will give you the greatest return when you have no time in the future.
When you find yourself "doing" email, it's time to reevaluate how you are using the tool.
Passwords leak. The more places you use them, the deeper under water you can get.
Never prioritize your digital communication above your real-world communication.
Take a pen & paper. Take it down. Take responsibility.
Cake? Yes. Singing? Maybe. Blow the day off? No.
As ephemeral as it feels, email is digitally permanent. When in doubt, don't hit SEND.
If it says you are AVAILABLE, be available.
Answering one point does not close the conversation.
Time is divided not multiplied when you attempt to do more than one thing at a time.
Names should make sense to a new person on their first day.
Texts and emails are sight only. Video chats add sound. In-person adds touch.
The whiteboard is a temporary surface for your ideas. Take them with you and make them real.
WHEN you want something is just as important as WHAT you need. Be clear in your requests.
If you need to setup your laptop or load your presentation – do it BEFORE the meeting starts.
Summarize yourself. Ask questions that can receive a yes or no answer.
Seriously. Think about it.
