How many different ways do you want to be accessible? Usually one will work.
The more ways someone can reach you, the less work you’ll get done. Let’s break down the cycle:
1. The more technology you have, the more information sources you will have.
2. The more information sources, the more things that will interrupt you and the more things you will need to check.
3. The more you check (Process the information), the less you will get done (Produce work).
Technology is great if it is limited, learned, and utilized properly. No doubt that one state-of-the-art chainsaw is worth ten different types of axes—as long as you know how to use it properly—and periodically sharpen it.
Can you combine your technology?
Sometimes less really is more.
