When you absolutely, positively must get more done in less time using Microsoft Outlook

Do you desperately crave that mythical 'Inbox Zero' and streamlined workflow you've heard about? The good news is, you can! Discover how to harness the powerful tools within Outlook to wave goodby to your cluttered inbox and disorganised schedule.

Gain an unfair advantage

Is Microsoft Outlook The Bain of Your Life?

You know how it goes.

You get into work early, grab a coffee and fire up your computer. "I'll just spend a few minutes clearing my inbox before I start my real work", you think (naively). 

Ping. The first email enters your inbox, followed by a dozen more. Ping. Ping. Ping.

You respond to a few, delete a few and more arrive.

You look at the clock and realise it's time for your mid-morning meeting.

The meeting has to be moved to another room because of a double-booking and some people didn't turn up because there of an invite stuff-up. 

When you finally get back to your desk, your email has multiplied. It's out of control. You spend most of your day responding to email rather than doing your actual job. It's exhausting.
