It took less than four minutes to unsubscribe from 17 mailing lists. What followed was an immediate sense of relief from the overwhelming demand of reading emails many times during the day. Was it a matter of working up the nerve, or the final one-too-many emails that sent me over the edge? Whatever the cause, the relief was immediate and the freedom it provides continues to open up new opportunities.
I kept thinking I would read them
What will you read?
- One daily spiritual post (Abraham-hicks ). Helps keep me aware during the day.
- Two business philosophers and thought leaders (Seth Godin and Chris Brogan). Makes me think overview and big picture.
- Two news sources ((The Daily Beast and The Huffington Post ),). Makes me a better conversationalist and aware of new trends.
- A daily smile and chuckle (I Can Has Cheezeburger ). A giggle is always welcome.
