If you’re highly productive then you most likely have systems.

Systems enable you to do certain kinds of things … systematically.

Specifically, there are certain kinds of things that happen all the time.

Thus, if you have a system for dealing with them, then you don’t have to reinvent the wheel all the time.

This seems obvious yet in practice, I fear that most of us don’t realize just how many things we’re not systematizing … and in not doing so, wasting countless hours of precious time.

One obvious example right off the bat: email.

You probably get a lot of email.

You probably check your inbox(es) frequently.

You probably don’t have a polished system for checking, reading, and responding to them.

This is, potentially, a deadly time killer.

Here’s one excellent system for managing email.

It’s not the only one out there, but it works.
