I read your 1MTD book last week while I was on vacation, then applied it when I got to work this past Monday morning. Wow, what a difference 1MTD made in keeping me on task while getting back into work mode. I cleared two weeks worth of emails from my inbox by mid afternoon, and every time I got pulled away from a project by phone/counter/staff, the high and normal priority lists kept me from being distracted/swamped by many less urgent tasks/requests!
