How Many Inboxes Do You Have?

How Many Inboxes Do You Have?

Itzy Sabo has a good reminder on not only your in-tray on your desk and email inbox are your Inboxes.

I am sure you will agree with Itzy, there are too much unprocessed stuff accumlate and we should start integrate the inboxes together. I like his suggestion on avoiding Post-it notes:

… Another item I’ve eliminated altogether is post-it notes. These break all the rules of my system and compete for my attention when they are least relevant.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
