On a slow day, I get around 60 to 75 emails. On a bad day I get around 200. For months I wrestled with trying to keep my inbox organized and not lose track of things – but it was tough. Eventually, I came up with a system that works well for me and I’m hoping it helps you with your inbox management goals. So far my system has helped me for well over a year – it’s not perfect, but it works for me.
The “recipe” for innovation as I see it (I’m sure countless others will disagree):
Attitude + Creativity + Action + Iteration = Innovation
While everyone has the ability to participate in innovation, it does take a certain attitude and culture. Having the willingness and bravery to try is definitely handy. But I think true innovation requires a little something extra, the ability to get back up and keep moving forward.
Would you participate in this program? Part of me thinks this a cool idea - I mean when you are on a long flight, it seems to be a great way to kill time and make business connections. On the flip-side, I’m not sure I want to be pitched by vendors the whole time or have no real exit strategy (literally). Furthermore, what if no one wants to meet with you? Ouch,
Either way, I love the attempt at changing/enhancing the flying experience. Something to watch for. Could this work for other modes of travel? What about long drives? Lines in the grocery store?
