  1. Back in 99 when I was with IBM, I attended a course by the name “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”.

    It was based on a book of the same name by Franklyn W Covey and we were given a copy as part of the course.

    Whilst I personally found much of it common sense, there were some good parts. Many people who attended found it a life changing moment.

    One of the things I went away with in my mind was the instruction to turn off new mail notification. If you’re busy LEAVE EMAIL ALONE, if it’s important they will phone or IM. Email can wait and shouldn’t be real time.
