The Tools for Thought blog had a very good post today explaining you should never check your email.
“Never check email. Ever.”
Instead, Andre recommends you “process” your email. This is very similar to my email workflow in that I deal with each item either immediately or dump it into OmniFocus for later process. I explained it in detail during the email sorcery screencast.
This stuff isn’t rocket science, but it may help you build a rocket. How are you processing email?
