You’re on the road again…perhaps with Willie. As if your daily routine wasn’t messed up enough, you also have a gazillion e-mails to go through when you are in an unfamiliar territory. How can you possibly read and do something with all of them?
The next time you are on the road for the week, ask your staff to do this. Type an A or S at the beginning of the Subject line of their e-mails to you. By them typing an A (for Action), you will be alerted that you need to do something with the e-mail.
By them typing an S (for Support) you will know that the information doesn’t require an action. It can be saved in Windows Explorer without needing to be read or any action taken.
That way, you can spend your valuable time on important things such as fighting traffic to the airport, waiting in line to be frisked, and then trying to find your hotel room, if they even reserved it for you.
There’s no place like home Dorothy.
