1 Taking Control of Your Terry Stewart Lowell Williamson AHS Computing Monday, March 20, 2006
2 Overview Setting up a system that works for you Types of Creating appointments, contacts and tasks 4 D s of Learning to Cope Filtering techniques
3 Importance of Whether we like it or not is an important method of communication It should be treated with the same respect as the telephone or what we now call snail mail It is legally recognized -
4 Setting up a System Essentially there are 2 types of s 1. Reference Reference s contain information that is not required to complete an action; it is information that you want to keep in case you need it later. 2. Action Action s contain information you must have to complete an action. 3. Conversational s that are part of a conversation similar to using a messenger service or talking with the person directly
5 Reference s These s contain information related to a specific task or project Information can be stored in the body of the message or as an attachment Actions? File the message into an appropriate folder in your program Copy the text of the message from a document to file Save the attachment to an appropriate directory on your hard drive Is it appropriate to print-out this type of ?
6 Action s Action s require people to take an action like schedule a meeting or follow up with another colleague How to deal with action s? 1. Put the task in your task list in Outlook 2. Schedule a meeting or task in your calendar Once you have determined which action to take, confirm with your colleague and then delete the
7 Conversational s If an arrives in your inbox that is based in conversation should be read, responded to (if necessary) and then deleted! You wouldn t walk through the halls with a pen and notepad writing down the conversations you engage in why would you keep similar s??? Read it and delete it!
8 Your Inbox Remember, your Inbox is your Inbox -- it s not your Task List. You don t use your paper inbox as a filing system, do you? (Okay, maybe you do. So how s that working for you, anyway?) Once you've cleaned out your inbox, nicely categorized and prioritized your Task List, don t forget to use it. If you do forget, you ll soon have a long To Do list, and a full Inbox, not exactly an improvement on the situation
9 Creating a Task Creating a task is simple Click on the Task icon at the bottom of the screen OR Go to File New Task
11 Creating an Appointment Creating an appointment is easy Click on the Calendar icon at the bottom of the screen OR Go to File New Appointment
13 Your Inbox Remember your inbox is not your address book An message is not an address book entry Take the time to make an address book entry it will save you time in the long run!
14 How to create an address entry in Outlook In Outlook the address book is called Contacts To create a new Contact go to File New Contact To add a Contact from someone who has sent you a message, open up the message and rightclick on the address then select Add to Outlook Contacts
15 is not your filing system Don't use your as a filing system. And for heaven's sake, don't rescue a coworker who is looking for something you happen to have tucked away in an folder. Let them rescue YOU! If someone else owns a document/plan/conversation, let them store it for you. Chances are if you need it, someone else has it.
16 Just say NO! Not reading that mailing list you subscribed to? Get off it. The list is likely archived anyway. Getting too many jokes from family or friend, politely tell them that you have a problem with mail overload and ask them to stop sending jokes. Make it sound like your problem, not theirs. Eg, I just get too much and don t have time to read your jokes as great as they are.
17 Bogged Down by Class ??? Tell your students they must prefix in the subject line, the course number (Eg, KIN101: ). Create a filter that sorts the in to a course folder. Designate a time in your work week to answer the questions. First read through all the questions, then set about to answer them. It's possible that many students are asking the same question and you can answer them all at once. Can you do the same for research projects or committees that you are on?
18 How to Filter in Outlook Go to Tools- Rules and Alerts then click on New Rule The Rules Wizard will allow to set specific flags and determine actions for incoming s
19 How to flag Go to Tools Rules and Alerts then click on Select Flag Messages and follow the wizard instructions
20 Use the Outlook Cleanup Tool Tools Mailbox Cleanup This built in function would be an excellent place to begin cleanup of your inbox
21 Personal Messages Keep your work for work and setup a second account for personal , entering contests, ebay purchases, etc. This works for some people. Remember to check your other account!
22 Dedicate time! How many interruptions do you get every each day? It's nearly impossible to complete anything when you allow constant interruptions from the phone, people stopping by your office, and instant messaging. So it's critical that you set aside uninterrupted time to process and organize your . Book yourself a recurring appointment for a half-hour each day to process . During this time don't answer the phone or take interruptions, and work only on processing your Inbox. At first, keeping these appointments will take discipline, but over time the discipline becomes habit. And once you get to zero in your Inbox, you'll see the value of this scheduled time.
23 Pickup the phone! Pick up the phone once in a while. You'll be surprised at how much you can get done in a phone call rather than on . And it may just save you playing tag back and forth several times with the person.
24 Daily Triage First thing in the morning, look at all new mail, Subjects & Senders Only and delete as many s as possible. Scroll through all your headers and delete: Spam and junk mail X-rated stuff automated messages no subject and you don't recognize the sender mailing lists items if there's no time to read them At the same, move anything you don't want to deal with at the moment to the appropriate folder.
25 Read it Once! Make it your motto. If at all possible, do not leave mail in the inbox for later. Once you've looked at the body of a mail message, try to take care of it right then and there, no matter what. Especially if it's a long mail message. You don't want to have to re-read again later to answer it. It's OK to skim it first. If you decide to answer it later, then make that a conscious decision
26 Be Concise If your mail is concise, then the receiver will not have to mail you back and ask for clarification. Proof read your before sending it. Check dates and days of the week Check who it is being sent to. Answer all the questions the person posed, so you don't get another message back from them. Use a meaningful subject line (this is selfish because if they mail you back you will have set a subject that means something to you)
27 Being Courteous Sending Clean up messages headers et al. Deleting the non-pertinent info Signature Not attaching attachments
28 Don't add to others Mail Overload Do you really need to send that joke? It's OK to say "Thanks" but does that just invite a "You're welcome"? Do you really need to do a "Reply all"? Do you really need to attach a file? Do you need to forward chain letters? Are you sure what you are forwarding isn't a hoax?
29 Flagging Remember that the priority tags that are attached to are the sender's priority tag not yours. You can use a filter in Outlook to colour code based on sender, subject, etc.
30 Where do I start? If you are at a loss as to where to start, copy the contents of your current inbox to newly created folder (ie. 2006inbox) You can then start from scratch using the techniques learned from this seminar
31 4 D s of Decide what to do with each and every message How many times have you opened, reviewed, and closed the same message over and over? Some of those messages are getting lots of attention but very little action. It is better to handle each message only once before taking action which means you have to make a decision as to what to do with it and where to put it. Under the 4 D's model, you have four choices: 1. Delete it 2. Do it 3. Delegate it 4. Defer it
32 Deleting s Does the information relate to one of your meaningful objectives? If not, delete it. Can you find the information somewhere else, such as another department, your company intranet, or the Internet? If so, delete it. Are you likely to refer to the information in the next six months? If not, delete it. Do you have to keep the information because it is legal or human resources information? If not, delete it. Is the over 2 years old? If so, delete it.
33 Do it! DO IT (in less than two minutes) If you can't DELETE IT, then decide, "What specific action do I need to take?" and "Can I DO IT in less than two minutes?" If you can, just DO IT. There is no point in filing an or closing an e- mail if you can complete it in less than 2 minutes. Try it out see how much mail you can process in less than 2 minutes. I think you will be extremely surprised and happy with the results. You could file the message, you could respond to the message, or you could make a phone call. You can probably handle about one third of your messages in less than two minutes.
34 Delegate it! If you can't DELETE IT or DO IT in two minutes or less, can you DELEGATE IT? If you can delegate it, do it right away. You should be able to compose and send the delegating message in about two minutes. Once you delegate the action, delete the original message or move it into your reference system.
35 Defer it! If you cannot DELETE IT, DO IT in less than two minutes, or DELEGATE IT, then the action required is something that only you can accomplish and that will take more than two minutes. You ll probably find that about 10 percent of your e- mail messages have to be deferred. There are two things you can do to defer a message: 1. turn it into an actionable task 2. turn it into an appointment When you're using Outlook 2003, you can DEFER e- mails with actions by turning the into a task on your Task List. Name the task to clearly state what action is required so that you don't have to reopen the message. The result is a clearly defined list of actions in your task list that you can prioritize and schedule to complete on your Calendar.
36 Ignore Incoming until you have time to process it Can you imagine if snail mail was real-time? Would you wait by your house's mailbox, and open each piece of junk mail as it came in? Change your default view on Outlook to open to your Calendar and Task List, rather than your Inbox. Turn off the popup toast and reminder sound when comes in. Don't respond immediately to each incoming .
