To avoid inbox shock when returning from vacation, a lot of us check email constantly while on vacation. It's a pretty awful way to live if you think about it.

When your vacation starts, set your email's vacation auto-responder to say:
Thank you for your email. This mailbox is temporarily full. If your email is important please resend it on [Return Date].
When you return, select all the emails you received while on vacation.

The Moka Pot, also known as the Moka Espresso or the Moka Elite, were invented in the early 1930s and have been making killer coffee ever since. It's incredibly popular in Europe and Central and South America, and while it's not as popular in the United States, a few of us here at Lifehacker love them, even if they're not the easiest coffee makers to find in your local department store (although they are $25 at Amazon, so there's that). I've seen them in thrift stores, old and well-loved models available for a few bucks, with people passing by not knowing what they're seeing.

GTD emphasizes the value of having a complete and current inventory of your commitments. That way you’ll know what you can say yes to, and when saying no is more productive.
