What I learned today

To manage time more efficiently, finish up any task on your plate as soon as you get to it. Basically, if you are looking at your inbox - reply, delete or file the mail. Deal with all mails right then and there. Dont leave anything for later. You will never reach to it, once it gets burried under a pile of new emails.

The same rule applies for blog subscriptions as well. Read the posts and be done. Dont just skim the post and mark it for reading later. I had 200 posts that I had marked to be read later and that was 6 months ago. I cleaned up my subscriptions, nuked the 200 to be read posts and started afresh.

Even in the offline world. If you have any task to be worked upon, just work on it and get it done. Never leave anything lingering for tomorrow. Tomorrow it will be out of sight and out of mind.
