I have a question I was hoping to get some feedback on from everyone here re: mailing lists. How do people deal with them in a GTD framework?
Here's the situation: I get a few mailing lists in my inbox. For the most part, I've unsubscribed from those that I don't get any value, so the ones I receive now usually have some nugget or two of good info. Whether it's a job lead, an interesting company to check out, or a wedding vendor referral (I'm getting married 10/29/05), there's usually some very good signal amidst the noise.
The problem is the sheer volume of messages. I take care of some of that by subscribing via digest mode, but it still takes time to read through. Can anyone give suggestions on how they deal with it? Also, how do you save any good info and act (or not act) on it?
Here's the outcome I'm trying to achieve: I want to be able to glean what's important and worth saving in these mailing lists and have it ready for future use.
