Andy recently did an interview with Mike Vardy at Productivityist. Mike is well known for being dead against using email as a task manager, so Andy went to defend the approach (you can decide who fared better!).

Among the points raised were:

  • Inbox Zero, in isolation, does more harm than good
  • Slack is not the solution to a busy inbox. It just moves the problem from your inbox to Slack, and that becomes the new overbearing place.
  • ‘Snoozing’ functionality just creates a tidal wave ahead of you, as we keep re-snoozing things.
