A Method To The Madness
Knowledge work is fast moving and often overwhelming. We are our own factory today. We have to be efficient, produce and get things done. The frantic pace can cause us to often feel overwhelmed day in and day out.
I have worked with teams, executives and entrepreneurs to teach them a solid system of managing their workflow called the ZeroInbox system. Every day, we are inundated with more information that our parents or grandparents ever dealt with. Those inputs are not going to go away. Our work is virtual and demands our attention, focus and execution. It is the way of the new economy.
Read My Book: Achieve Higher Levels Of Productivity
“It is possible to not only get to a ZeroInbox, but to maintain it ongoing.”
I wrote this book, ZeroInbox, to help anyone that wants a straightforward approach to managing their email and other technology systems day in and day out.
Productivity is a habit and a process which can be achieved with knowledge and practice in today’s fast moving world. In this book, you will learn:
- How to choose and manage your multiple information inputs
- How to get your email to zero and keep it there every day
- What it means to be action-oriented with your email
- The importance of creating meaning from information
- Key technologies that can help you save time and find big opportunities
- Why things are so fast and what you must do to prosper in the game
You will get back time and attention from applying these strategies in your specific work life.

Learn what it means to lead your life and gain control in areas that can seem overwhelming. Each day presents so many unknowns from all of the people that are able to create work for you by simply sending an email that demands your attention. This approach allows you to be ready for anything that comes your way.
Much of what I write about is from firsthand experience and the result of testing out different approaches. I sought to simplify how to manage information and get more done and then helped many others with the same approach. For many of my clients, they were able to:
- Be more responsive to their customers
- Increase their capacity for getting things done
- Avoid having to hire more help to cover over a root issue of disorganization
- Clear their minds from the stress of indecision
- Develop the habit of thinking about concrete next steps
“The knowledge worker has to determine the task to be done as well as ascribe meaning to the work. The challenge lies in how fast meaning can be made. Speed counts for a great deal of effectiveness today. Making meaning of ambiguous information is a critical skill to avoid drowning in the work.”

ZeroInbox Consulting And Speaking
The habits you have with your inbound information will determine your effectiveness. These habits will create continual clarity and allow you to have peace of mind regardless of how much is coming at you. This system requires:
- Thinking like an executive
- Making decisions
- Moving with speed
- Vigilance on every input
- Intentional design
- Strong boundaries
A ZeroInbox system to your work increases your productivity via a leadership approach to your work. It is using the right tools, process and behaviors to get work done consistently.
When you have clutter in the form of hundreds of emails, lots of paper, unreturned calls, unread magazines and the myriad options demanding your attention, you are operating at low potential. You miss opportunities and can lose credibility as someone who gets things done. It does not have to be this way. If you are committed to learning a better way, then your world can change.
I consult and teach on the ZeroInbox methods in articles on productivity, speaking engagements and seminars, and leadership consulting.
