Email tip #3 - how to open inbox in a separate window


Instead of switching from your Calendar to the Inbox when you visit it at a designated, 'single-tasking' block of time, simply right click on the mail icon and select Open in New Window.


This opens the mailbox in a separate window which you close one you’ve checked and processed the inbox (using the proven 4D method), returning to the Calendar view and resuming your schedule of other high priority tasks, activities and commitments.

This way, you only go to the inbox (in a proactive way) when you intend to address email and make 4D decisions, rather than having the inbox open all the time and being constantly distracted as new messages arrive (working reactively).

Try this for yourself over the next few weeks and see what difference it makes!

All the best.
