For three weeks, Nate Milton wrote down any thought, image or memory that gave him a tingly feeling. He animated the list, and what it accidentally became was a stream-of-consciousness trek through his life. Beautiful!

This is an interesting new approach to deal with your inbox. Zach Hanlon organizes everything that lands in his inbox in 5 folders:
Inbox: the inbox is a holding pen. Emails shouldn’t stay here any longer than it takes for you to file them into another folder. The exception to this rule is when you respond immediately and are waiting for an immediate response.
Today: Everything that requires a response today.
This Week: Everything that requires a response before the end of the week.
This Month/Quarter: – Everything that needs a longer-term response. Depending on your role, you many need a monthly folder. Others can operate on a quarterly basis.
FYI: Most items I receive are informational. If I think I may need to reference an email again, I’ll save it to this folder.
So, instead of organizing your emails by Subject Line, this system organizes by due date. I am tempted to give this a try. He also says that if your work is project-based you can create this five-folder system for each project. Totally makes sense.
