Goals?

So dude thinks you should focus more on the process instead of reaching a specific goal.

Choosing a goal puts a huge burden on your shoulders. Can you imagine if I had made it my goal to write two books this year? Just writing that sentence stresses me out.

But we do this to ourselves all the time. We place unnecessary stress on ourselves to lose weight or to succeed in business or to write a best-selling novel. Instead, you can keep things simple and reduce stress by focusing on the daily process and sticking to your schedule, rather than worrying about the big, life-changing goals.

When you focus on the practice instead of the performance, you can enjoy the present moment and improve at the same time.

Restoring Sanity To Your Inbox

I need help my email is out of control.

I think I tried just about every email client on the market yet my inbox is still bulging full.

PCWorld’s Liane Cassavoy wrote last year that in 15 minutes SaneBox whittled her Gmail account from 32,000 messages (1,000 unread) to 1,200 messages (100 unread). I’ve used the service myself with similar results and especially liked a folder called “SaneBlackHole” into which you can put unwanted messages—doing so tells SaneBox to send messages from that sender directly to trash.

SaneBox can also tell if a message is a newsletter and send it to a folder called “SaneNews.” And if SaneBox ever puts a message in the wrong folder and you move it to a different one the platform learns from your action and won’t make the same mistake again.

SaneBox is now integrated with Boxer so check it out if you have iOS.
