jamie goode's wine blog

Friday, March 17, 2006

Non-wine related, I thought I'd draw readers' attention to an entry from another blog, 43 folders, here, about managing emails. I quote:

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

It's a really useful site - there's another post I just read on flow. This is some information I may just act on.

"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."

Jamie - was there anythig to rerport from these 2 days...

Back to wine. Tomorrow it's the 0645 flight to Melbourne, and two days in the Yarra, followed by two more days of as yet unconfirmed wine-related activity around the Melbourne area (some of this will be closure related: don't yawn, it's important).

If so where as I missed it?

Yes, but you'll have to wait - most of this will be in the closures book, available May 2006.

Looking forward to it but thought there might be some news in the blog from that part of the trip as you tempted us with the "yawn" comment. Will look out for publication. David
