Since the beginning of COVID-19, I’ve been dismantling a lot of my productivity and organization systems, trying to put less pressure on myself to get things done and be more mindful in how I spend my time. Several months ago—I cannot remember exactly when—this culminated in taking email off my phone and pivoting away from the excellent Things 3 task management app to a more paper notebook-driven approach to keeping track of what I need to get done.
Pleased with my decision to no longer tackle email on weekends; less pleased with the Mailbox Mondays that have resulted.
I have been getting emails incorrectly calling me “Dr.” or “Professor” since I was an undergrad with my own section of French 102. Now, it’s nice to get one of those and be able to suppress the instinct to correct the sender.
A bug in my macOS mail client has just told me that after years of trying, I have finally reached the elusive “Inbox Negative One.”
Just misspelled my own name in an email because I didn’t want to be impersonal by using my text expansion-powered signature 🙄
