Two Things I Learned from David Horsager

It’s time for me to make a shameless plug for my friend David Horsager. He just wrote a new book called The Daily Edge: Simple Strategies to Increase Efficiency and Make an Impact Every DayIn it he provides thirty-five easy-to-follow strategies for overcoming inertia, prioritizing and keeping refreshed and energized. 

Two of my favorite things from it:

Never have a day where you have to say, “I worked really hard, but I didn’t get anything done.”

There should never be a time where that sentence comes into play. You are capable of accomplishing something every single day and there is no reason to be satisfied with wasting anything.

Keep less than 10 e-mails in your inbox.

We get crazy in this digital world and something as simple as too many things in our inbox can throw our whole day off track. If you have over 10 messages in your inbox there’s an underlying message there that you aren’t control, aren’t organized, but understand that you are capable of getting there.
