Managing your life takes more than meditation — it takes a better Outlook!

Technology was supposed to help us manage our lives. Instead, most of us feel we spend our lives managing technology. So this book is not about software; it's about making the software serve YOU.

  • One size does not fit all — choose and customize the Outlook task-management processes that work for your personal situation

  • Tame the e-mail monster — use folders, categories, flags, and message rules to keep e-mail manageable

  • To do or not to do — empower your calendar, taskpad, and contacts to automate your schedule

  • Journal and take Notes — learn how these under-utilized Outlook functions help document your time and capture important thoughts
