How to win against a mailbox? Let`s renounce old soap!

Were thought: a lot of things that for Horatio simply and clear, but for the friend his Hamlet can be news exist. And even opening, I would tell.

Here, for example, all these not really global, but pleasant and useful trifles which are used by us for activity optimization. Unless their importance is less important in comparison with fundamental technicians?

And I thought - yes, certainly, is obligatory a little - Pomala will add the titanic work in all details describing own TM - technology. That, as, on what, what software, what iron, what nuances. But till that wonderful time it is pleasant to share trifles.

For example, with surprise found out that many still have a problem of the organization of a mailbox. Letters come, are saved, answers are postponed, forgotten, is shorter - put out the light. I hope that personally you, the reader, this bowl passed, but suddenly...

You want to bring order to mail? Let`s roll.

What there is it a usual post web - a box of average TM - the neophyte?

On the one hand, the mountain which collected in years entering (personally I have them in an inboksa a web - mails of thousands so... so there is a lot of thousands). On the other hand - a New Year tree from folders in which letters are poured by sparks of multi-colored tags. From the third party - hope sometime to allocate day and to sort all mail. Like, here I will sit down once since morning, and there will be to me happiness by the evening. By the evening happiness, perhaps, will also be, but in a week everything will return because at the heart of the technology of work with mail did not change.

So, right now you:

1. you Copy this line in the buffer:

************* PLINTH No. 1 **************

2. you Create in mail the empty letter with the subject which is just copied in the 3 buffer

. you Send it to yourself.

4. you Send yourself two more same letters.

As a result in a mailbox such picture was formed here:



************* PLINTH No. 1 **************

************* PLINTH No. 1 **************

************* PLINTH No. 1 **************


Letter.................................................................

Letter.................................................................

Letter.................................................................

Letter.................................................................

Letter................................................... ..............

do not open the letter - plinths, let are allocated on the general background. Further we deal with folders. Everything that above a plinth becomes the most important folder.

Perhaps, you already have a structure of folders for mail, but I would share such decision.

At the most top level a web - a box I have folders:

__! Otvetit_pozzhe

__! To make


of _arkhiv_vkhodyashchy



... well and further on subjects, it is not important any more. Names such - certainly, for sorting that above kept. By the way, there is a group of folders which sorting move by means of use of a prefix “yu _ down“: for example, “yu_poleznye_rassylka“

as a result itself is given installation: the plinth on the screen has to be always visible. The plinth should not fall below a visibility range, as a last resort - the first page of the list of letters. Plintusny group of letters is what answers criterion “Urgently + Important“. That is, it has to be settled today.

“__! Otvetit_pozzhe“ - here dumps letters for the answer not today.

“__! To make“ - letters which do not assume the answer depart here, but mean some action. To download something at the link or what to read, or in general - to decide what with it to do.

Two separate storages for letters to the answer and letters to action in my case are repaid completely especially as on the automatic machine realize the Rule of the Third Nailing.

“_arkhiv_vkhodyashchy“ - here all that was not:

a) it is removed;

) is placed in thematic folders;

in) is postponed in “to Answer / Make“.

You, perhaps, ask: “Well, here I in a box had right now a plinth. And what to do with the fact that below a plinth?“ I to you will answer

I: to hell all that below a plinth. It is possible to poagonizirovat, of course, slightly before amputation of the heavy past, to doobrabotat something from the comer in recent days. Let all that below a plinth, there also lives. It is possible to make, of course, a plinth of 20 letters in size, but I personally have also three.

Generally - we will renounce old soap!

Sometimes ask: “And why a plinth with number the first?“ to

But because, believe, seldom it is possible to join in orderliness at once, but having passed three - four plinths, everything precisely settles down.
