A manager I know did a study on his email for last year. He had over 50,000 emails that arrived in his inbox. Fifty thousand!
Each day we process tens, maybe hundreds, of email messages. Sometimes it may feel like that is all we do. Being efficient in our email processing includes using email templates or signatures.
There are some third party tools such as Textexpander, Typinator and Keyboard Maestro that can help with this processing. However, if you work for a company with strict IT policies, you might not be able to use them.
Remote working has evolved for the past several years or even a decade ago. Today, we have virtual teams spread out all over the world. Businesses can run with Slack, an internet connection, and some great support staff.

Assistants no longer have to be right outside your door, rather they can be halfway around the world coordinating your business from a laptop.
Remote working certainly has morphed, but it's not just about working in a different time zone; it can also be about working in a different location.
Some people need a quiet place to work while others can work from virtually anywhere. Starbucks has made it easy to build a business from a coffee shop.
In today’s workplace, employees are craving alternative work environments. They want the Starbucks-feel without having to leave their campus.
When you think of journaling, what comes to your mind? Journaling has evolved over the years. The creator of The Five Minute Journal has been journaling since he was fourteen or fifteen years old.

The days of the diary still exist but in different forms. Developing a journaling habit must be intentional. Over the years, I have had several journals. Most of my journals have centered around travel. I shared some of my actual handwritten travel journal entries in my 40 for 40 series.
As I have grown in my understanding of journaling, I still appreciate the beauty of a handwritten journal; however, I now use tools that fit my digital workflow.
