Non-wine related, I thought I'd draw readers' attention to an entry from another blog, 43 folders, here, about managing emails. I quote:
It's a really useful site - there's another post I just read on flow. This is some information I may just act on.
This kind of “always on” approach to email (taken to extremes with those poor bastards praying into their Blackberries all day) has become a way of life for many of us. The idea of not checking email for 30 minutes can cause hives, twitching, and minor bodily leakage. “What if I ‘miss’ something?” And in some jobs, sure, it’s a requirement; you actually are so integral to your company’s existence that your electronic absence for 10 contiguous minutes might cause NASDAQ de-listing, financial ruin, and the immediate firing of that really cute girl from Finance. Fine. Understood. Skip the rest of this, and get back to your impossibly important job, Mr. Trump
"Accept that your workload exceeds your resources — that you are the first and last filter for what deserves your time — and you’ll already be better off than you were even two minutes ago."
