More connected less effective

More connected less effective

Now that I have an iPhone, I am blessed with a constant connection to
the Internet, email and text messages. One would think this would make
me more responsive and accessible by I find that my inboxes are filled
with more unaddressed messages than ever before!

Messages come in when I'm in the car, at the store, in meetings... I'm
usually quick to get my messages but clearing them out of my inbox is
proving to be difficult.

With emails, I find my inbox is littered with messages I need to view
from by home computer. It could be because they contain Flash files
(not yet viewable on the iPhone) or other files I want to save to my
computer at home. Sounds easy enough, if it wasn't for the fact that
since I'm connected all day, I do not want to go home and spend more
time on the computer.

The other emails are ones I need to respond to but because I might
view the message when I'm not able to reply they get piled up with all
the others and the idea of going through them in the evening is such a
daunting task.

Text messages, same thing. I read them when I can't respond and then
they pile up.

I am not at home at the momemt, and I suppose I could be using this
time to reply to messages, yet here I am, blogging about why I am
behind instead. Isn't that the way it always is?
