An article by Bill Gates for Fortune on CNNMoney.com, How I Work: Bill Gates, talks about he works day-to-day. He mentions that he only gets about 100 e-mails per day that he personally reads. Wow, something I have more of than Bill (other than debt) – e-mail to read. He mentions that he tracks some blogs, but no hint as to which ones. What do you think, technology related, or bridge strategy? I think I’ll write a post that mimics his article on my “digital workstyle.”
I'm not big on to-do lists. Instead, I use e-mail and desktop folders and my online calendar. So when I walk up to my desk, I can focus on the e-mails I've flagged and check the folders that are monitoring particular projects and particular blogs.
