Like many others I know, I manage my work life through the window of my email. Last night, as I was preparing to head out to FM’s staff holiday party, I managed to delete my entire inbox (it’s complicated, don’t ask how). I had about 25 messages sitting in that box, each of them an action item, a task I needed to execute. And then BLAM, they were gone. It feels like I have some kind of temporal amnesia – all these things I needed to do, sitting forever in my lost inbox.
Of course I’m working with our IT folks to see if we can rebuild it, and going through my sent mail and such to reconstruct my memories, but if you sent me mail in the past week or so and expect a response, well, help me out and resend it. Thanks!
