"I watch a lot of astronaut movies....Mostly Star Wars. And even Han and Chewie use a checklist."

Monolist living inbox

Your job is a list of tasks that you need to complete, a body of knowledge you pull from, and a process that you go through to actually complete them.

How do people manage tasks? Enter email

For most people, email tends to be the source of truth for what you need to do for a couple reasons.

  • Everyone has email. It’s the first thing you get when you join a company.
  • By default, email is integrated with everything. Every tool sends transactional emails.
  • Email is your work search engine. Because everything sends emails, that’s where you tend to search for what you need to know or do.

The problems with email

  • Email is noisy. Because everything’s integrated with email, your inbox can become unusable quickly if not properly managed.
  • Email is not actionable. Your email is a list, but you can’t take action from that list, except for responding to emails.
  • Email is shallow. Email can’t actually search for information across every tool in your company.
