A resource for “GTD” fans who want to work in Outlook; see the full post for more details
Do you get a lot of email? I’ll bet almost everyone out there said “yes.” If you’re drowning in information overload, you have to check out a new email management system that Angus Logan, Ian Palangio, and Johann Kruse have been developing. It’s called PIFEM, or Pay it Forward Email Management, and it’s loosely based on David Allen’s methodology called “Getting Things Done.”
The PIFEM system takes the best practices from GTD – that is, the 4 D’s of Email Management – and combined those with time management skills. Then, the system is integrated with the workflow options present in Outlook 2007 and Exchange Server. The end result is what they’re calling PIFEM.
