Stop Reading, Start Doing

This morning I am looking through my emails and I know I have a problem. I am oversubscribed. I love signing up for things. I love reading things. Lots of things. An avalanche of things.

The only problem is, I spend way too much time reading emails. Even skimming them takes time away from doing things that are more important.

My resolution today: unsubscribe from a handful of lists. Not the ones that bring real value, but the curiosities, the “someday I might find that useful but not today” emails that are clogging up my inbox and keeping me unfocused.

What about you? Do you need to unsubscribe, too? What will you do with the time and energy you can invest in something more meaningful?
