For those struggling with a work/life balance between spending hours at the office doing menial admin tasks or chilling at home playing console games perhaps there is an opportunity to accomplish both activities at the same time.
How about linking your email Inbox to a first-person shooter game. In a virtual environment your emails appear as avatars around you (like falling asteroids or alien monsters) that you eliminate with a hand-held weapon instead of hitting delete on the keyboard.
If you’re returning from vacation and have a few hundred emails to go through perhaps this is an easy way of getting back into your office routine?
That’s my idea for those aiming to have an Inbox with zero unread emails (#InboxZero). There’s plenty of other potential productivity applications.
