productivity update

So, I’ve been using my new, simple, email productivity plan for a few months now. And… it works at work, but not so much at home. At least not yet. My inbox at work is basically clear. It isn’t empty, but since I don’t have different categories for “to do now” and “will need to pay attention to in the future”, that is OK. But the home inbox has tasks that sit there an languish. I just don’t read email the same way at home. Plus, at work it is basically reasonable to assume that almost all of my tasks will be represented as email. At home, almost nothing is. At home, what I really need is a paper-based inbox. And, oh yeah, I need to actually try to clear it.
