I’m forever finding new tools, software and shortcuts to help me work more effectively.
A few weeks back I received a notification, look at this 6 months from now, it was an internal review. This was powered by FollowUpThen, a simple app which notifies when you need to follow up on something.
It works like this:
1) You forward or cc them in on an email
2) Put the date at the front of the email i.e. [email protected]
3) They then confirm the email and send it back to you on that date.
It’s the ultimate getting things done trick, get things off your plate which are deferred and you’ll get them back when you need them.
