INBOX ZERO! I’m more efficient!
I just got my gmail inbox for the business down to zero. Nothing hanging over my head, everything has been dealt with in accordance to the Inbox Zero system.
Delete: Spam/garbage/unactionable/unuseful = deleted! (I like to put on a Strong Bad voice for that part)
Delegate: Give it to someone else - Task it to an employee to action, forward it to another expert, CC the person who sent it so they know they’ve been moved to someone else.
Respond: Fire back a quick question or answer and move on. Pass the hot potato… don’t hold on to it.
Defer: Add it to the google task list and deal with it during my scheduled administration time (Daily 1 hour, Weekly 3 hour roundup)
Do: Take the time to actually do the action required by the email. This is the best one. If it’s a 0-5min task, just get it done.
Following this can get the email inbox guilt under control, and free up LOTS of time for the REAL work of designing, production, writing, coding, whatever. (It helps to do some background studies of Getting Things Done) And if you don’t know what I’m talking about… you gotta check out Merlin Mann’s talk to Google about Inbox Zero.
God I feel good! Productivity!!!!!
Thanks Merlin (Truck spank) Mann. You add value to the world.
(Follow Merlin’s Tumblr here, sometimes brilliant, sometimes funny, sometimes just odd. Very very good.)
Great Introduction to Rubber Book! Great to drag in those “I think they’re secretly kinky” friends.
REVIEW BY: Mad_Scientist - Owner of Kink Engineering Custom Latex
I just had a chance to sit down for a couple of hours and read through this great book by 3XL of www.lustlovelatex.com and I throughly enjoyed the experience.
The e-book is true to it’s name as a PERFECT beginners guide to latex fetishism. A great overall review of what it is to be a latex fetishist, full of sound advice for the many MANY people out there who are wrestling with their internal desires for latex lifestyles of all sorts.
The opening chapters on buying and caring for rubber gear followed by introductions and suggestions of rubber fetish play are not terribly unique or deep. The information will be familiar teritory for even fairly new latex fetishists who have been seeking out latex images and pondering clothing online.
The experienced rubberist will no doubt find these parts trivial, but keep in mind the target audience is the newbie, and overwhelming details can be the death of an introductory guide.
Where the book truly shines is it’s chapters on identifying and evaluating your latex fetish, joining the latex community and ground rules for starting a search for a fetish friendly partner.
Had I had access to a reference work like this 15 years ago I would have saved much frustration in my long search for a kink-positive parter in life! The guidelines and advice are rational and useful to all levels of rubberist. The book centers on how to present yourself as a persona and fetishist instead of following the mindless seeking of a particular iconic fetish partner that is the common failing of many a desperate lonely latex enthusiast.
I particularly enjoyed a side item focusing on “Don’t be creepy” that, while amusing, presented good information on the subject of creepy behavior online and off, such as “Knowing things about someone isn’t the same as knowing them”. Amen!
It is refreshing to see a resource speaking about the search for self knowledge and self improvement as part of the search for a kinky partner.
My only concern about the book is that it’s target market is the uninitiated. As such it’s going to be a trick to get it into the hands of those that may not even know that they need it yet… promoting it on latex blogs and fetish community sites is good, but a bit too late to capture the people who will truly benefit from it’s sound entry level advice. (Preaching to the choir)
One way of accomplishing this is to get this book’s website linked publically and often as a definitive entry level resource to the latex community. Go on… you know you want to blog about it along side Katy Perry and Lady Ga Ga or just mention it casually to a friend who you have always suspected of being a closet kinkster.
Pssst… this book is great for those beginning to explore a latex fetish, pass it on.
Fix the economy! Help someone start a business by getting training!
It was not all that long ago (2008) that I took the course that changed my life and catapulted me into owning/opperating a latex design business. Learning the tools of a trade has unlocked the creative potential that was formerly left to the inside of my head… now that my hands know how to finish the job.
Rachel Grey is trying to do the same but for Shoe design and I like the cut of her jib. If you have a few bucks kicking around your paypal account, why not donate a little to help her out on her goal for paying for some professional training!
DONATE TO THE SHOEMAKING COURSE FUND FOR RACHEL GREY
P.s. THIS IS WHAT THIS DAMN ECONOMY NEEDS!!! Help for enthusiastic risk taking entrepreneurs, artists and hard workers… Not tax rebates for millionaires. I’m so glad I’m Canadian…
I just got off the phone with the people who run the small shoe school I am hoping to attend. Not only are they lovely people for allowing me to take classes that are already full, but I ended the call with excited jitters running through me. This sounds like exactly the sort of education I need….
