I was getting tired of making notes in Todoist or Evernote or my notebook for actions with emails that would only take a minute or two when I got a reply or received the right information back – I know that I try to close the loop on tasks that take less than a minute or two but thought that there had to be a better way to handle this…
Does that sound familiar?
If so, check out this short video for a great solution that integrates right into Gmail. Here’s the link for FireFox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/simple-gmail-notes/
This lets me quickly add a note when sending an email for future reference or as a “todo” when I get a reply back.
This may be as simple as waiting for the next response and adding a note about what the end goal is so that I can be sure to follow up correctly, or a note as to what the conversation was about or needs to be about.
There’s a lot you can accomplish with this handy add on and I like to think of it as an extension of my email’s “brain”!
