99.5% Noise

My suspicion is that filtering isn’t the answer here. That’s just too many damn emails and a lot of it needs to get cut off at the source.

I’m starting to think that for an average busy person, that 100 emails a day is doable, with perhaps 25% directly actionable. That’d be more like 3,500 emails for Jamison (still a lot, but paternity leave is an unusual situation) and 875 actionable. That’s actionable number took a huge leap up, but you’d think that would/could take a dramatic dip if you’re clear that you are on leave.
