Emails are often the most time-consuming work for every professional, finding the important conversation amidst the noise is a real challenge. I was surprised to find that I was subscribed to more than 900+ mailing list.Think about the amount of noise my inbox would generate. HUGE!

Watch the Video Interview of Mark Parker, CEO of Nike, Where he says an advice he got from Steve Jobs on Focus.

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying “no” to 1,000 things.

Mailing List create a huge content feed in our inbox which always distracts us from focusing on the high priority conversations. I have experienced and seen plenty of people getting lost after opening their mailboxes. Managing the email subscriptions are key to your mailbox discipline.

Un-Subscribing to unwanted mailing list can hugely clean up your inbox giving you more visibility to the task in hand, keeping you more organized with emails. Here is how you can manage your mailing list subscription, 

Use UNROLL.ME to un-subscribe from the Zillion ‘used-less/use-less’ mailing list.

UNROLL.ME: A fabulous tool which I use to manage my subscription. This tool inspired me to even think about how unproductive I get after seeing all the noise generated in my inbox. The app is both in Web and iOS format.

Upon using this tool, I am really free from the noise of mailing list and I can now focus on the important emails and save plenty of time from cleaning my inbox. I would recommend you to give it a try and share your comments on his this app saved your day.

Happy Un-Subscribing! 🙂

Busy! The favorite word of every IT person, which signs that we are turning unproductive. The moment you feel you are busy, take a break. Breaks allow you to regain your focus, sharpens your intuition, allows you to make conscious plans and be more productive. I am sharing 3 simple ways, I hack my brain to be little more productive everyday. 

Start using these awesome tools and enjoy a happy healthy life!

#1: Limitless Chrome Plugin: We tend to spend most our time browsing web, checking mails, socializing online. This plugin helps us to measure our productivity, set goals, remind us on our short-term / long-term goals and motivate us. I am glad that one of my friend has created this plugin which has become an awesome start in my everyday work-life.

Download Limitless here.

#2: Calm: Every IT geek excuse a healthy lifestyle for their busy schedule. Keeping your mind calm and peaceful is the first step towards healthy thoughts and we surely need at-least 2 minute of relaxation in a form of meditation (or) a nature walk alongside a river or beach or park to refresh our mind. But as we have already discussed, our busy self will never take us to beach or park. So how about bringing a beach or park  to our desktop? 

Calm is an online portal providing a relaxing and refreshing guided meditation and natural setting for melting our mind into tranquility. Experience the magic here. Read more
