Getting Email Under Control -- question on long actionable emails
I just read David's article Getting Email Under Control.
For actionable email the requires more than two minutes to complete, he recommends putting them in an Actions folder.
My alternative is to file them by subject and add a next action to my next action list.
Seems like with an Action folder, you just have another inbasket that must be looked over regularly in addition to the next action list. So you have two places to look for next actions.
Seems like if you do NOT use an Action folder, but instead add to the next action list, you have all your next actions in one place, rather than two.
One place seems better. What am I overlooking that would make me choose to file in an Actions email folder instead of in a next actions list?
