People who take control of their inboxes are calmer, happier, more productive, and better at hitting work goals, says Emma Russell, a senior lecturer at the University of Sussex who studies the impact of email. The key is making a plan.
The article provides examples of email naysayers with a plan or strategy to cope with inbox overload. I hope you find them helpful.
Visuals are excellent ways to showcase an idea or expression. Here is a great demonstration of the most popular websites since 1993 by James Eagle.
Simple and beautiful.
I thought I would die, but my CEO took me to the hospital and saved my life. It was an anxiety attack, but it felt as though it was my last moment in this world. This week I am sharing about anxiety and how it changed my life. I hope the stigma around it reduces and my sharing about it helps people deal with their anxiety.

The Model Friction Spectrum is a growth framework focusing on 4 things that make up any business model:
1)How do you charge?
2)When do you charge?
3)What are you charging for?
4)The amount you charge
It also shows the journey of a product from low acquisition cost to high acquisition cost. This framework shows you should focus on “low-friction” to “high-friction” by delivering value to your customers.
An example of this would be LinkedIn:
LinkedIn (free) → LinkedIn (Premium jobs) → LinkedIn (Talent & Sales) → LinkedIn Enterprise solution.
From low friction (free) to eventually high friction (enterprise).
