Let's take a look at your morning. Chances are it takes you a while to wake up. You may need a shower, a shave, some coffee, breakfast, and maybe a chat with your loved one. Then—and only then—will you feel steady enough to wrestle with that onerous inbox of yours. I am very much this way: The last thing I want to do first thing is jump right into email. It's tempting, I know. How beautiful those bolded folders are with their brilliant blue unread mail counts, just itching to take over your brain, your time, and your life.
There's nothing worse finding your home mailbox filled with trash: useless coupons, real estate ads for houses you'll never be able to afford (cruel marketers!), sweepstakes entries, direct mail nonsense, and catalogs for you, your clothes, your hobbies, your wife (her clothes, her hobbies), your kids (ditto), and even your pets.
But wait; there IS something worse: Junk mail in your inbox, clogging it with promises of weight loss, virility, cases of champagne, and miracle cream to erase your fine lines and bad memories.
Making friends with your Outlook Junk Mail filter is like employing your very own beefy bouncer who’ll never let the uncool people beyond the front door.
There are three different ways in which you can share your Outlook 2010 calendar:
It just depends on what sort of calendar you're sharing and with whom you want to share it.
Question: How many mouse clicks and keyboard finger tappings does it take to categorize an email message, move it to a folder, add a follow-up flag, reply to it, and create a meeting request about it?
Answer: One, if you're using a Quick Step.
Quick Steps, new in Outlook 2010, is a feature that applies multiple actions at once to an email message. I like to think of Quick Steps as rules that I apply when I want to (rather than setting something up in Rules that is usually applied automatically). Frankly, I like the control the Quick Steps allow me because I'm looking at each mail that comes in and, with one click, I can have it take any number of actions. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Today's post isn't a long list of tips from which you can pick and choose and wander your way through—no. Today I'm presenting you with three power tips. Tips so sturdy, so reliable, and so easy to remember that I sort of feel bad that I haven't offered them up until now.
But I must confess: These tips came from a variety of places—I didn't just come up with them like magic—and so a couple of them are new to me, too.
In this final video installment, Harry has really learned some effective time and schedule management, and he knows that all that depends on consistently applying the principles he's learned-—fundamentals that can happen naturally after they become part of a normal routine.
But Renée has one more fun little tip for Harry before she's off on her new job.
Although you don't have much say about when and how many meetings are scheduled, you do have more control over your calendar than you might think.
In this video, Renée talks to Harry about some of the things he can do to take more control over his calendar such as 1) Setting aside time each morning to review his calendar and task list; 2) Blocking out appointments for completing the work he plans to do; and 3) Schedule more time for himself to do a thorough review about what's planned for the current week and beyond and how to prioritize those things
Learning to manage your email and time effectively is not only a function of Outlook features. Control of your schedule comes from understanding and following best practices in how you work. Renée explains the principles behind the practice of the "four Ds" in handling email:
But which one to employ? Renée offers some advice to Harry and something rings a bell for him...
