In the town where I live, Nantes, France, shops selling e-cigarettes replace former phone stores which went bust. But that’s a SCAM. Let me tell you why. First, I am not going to discuss if it is bad, better or worse or whatever for your health. I am not an expert and this is not my subject. I am an expert in time and priority management. I already wrote about the effects of cigarettes on time management : how smoking … Read the rest of the post →

When I arrived at the Evernote Conference on wednesday I did not know what to expect. I suspected there would be some announcements, that I would be energized by the talks. I was not expecting it to be that big. Post-It® and Evernote announced a Partnership. I loved the way Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, described how Evernote ended the war with paper with Moleskine® last year. Paper and Evernote are complementary, not against one and other. Personally, I view paper as the cure to the world of ADD we are currently living in. During the talks, I was taking notes in … Read the rest of the post →

Whenever I present my training on E-mail like I did lately to the managers of the city hall of Nantes, I always get a strange look on people’s face when I say: “An e-mail is NEVER urgent”. It is not. Let me explain you why: An e-mail is asynchronous. A pompeous word that means: the sender and the receiver must not be connected at the same time. Unlike face to face, phone call or Skype. So by definition it can not be urgent. There is a fire do you send an e-mail to the fire department ? You witness a … Read the rest of the post →
