I’m living a frequently-interrupted, very distracted life, in which ideas and todo items come up and, unless I catch them, get lost, and way too quickly.
I’m enjoying my Email Center Pro solution, which gives me some email addresses I can use to load my lists and brainstorm ideas from whatever email address is most convenient. That includes my iPhone’s email, so I can get to it from almost wherever I am.
You can see that best from this screen shot:
So, for example,
- when it occurred to me — I was waiting for an appointment — that this would be a good blog post, I emailed it to my email@example.com address (and that’s a fake address, doh).
- And when I remembered, at lunch, that I need to get an appointment for getting the car fixed, I emailed a list to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- And when I’m working at the computer, take a call, and need to remind myself to call somebody else, I send that one to the calls@ emailcenterpro address.
Each of these special emails is very easy to set up. I don’t have to ask our IT person for a new mailbox on the company server. I just do it in about one minute from the mailboxes tab of the account manager.
So when I want to refer back to these lists, they’re right there in the dashboard of my Email Center Pro email account.
Simple and easy.
