Tips for Smart Work

Check your email first thing

This one is fairly counterintuitive; basically everyone says not to check email right away, but I do and find it extremely useful. Here are some ways checking email first helps me to be more productive during the day.

If you work in a remote team like we do at Buffer, a business trend that is increasingly more common, youll know what its like to have half of your team (or more) working while youre asleep. If you need to work closely with others, its important to check in before you start your workday and make sure youre on the same page as everyone else.

Since I started working at Buffer, Ive woken up to emails saying I had typos to fix, a new blog post published, and even that Buffer had been hacked. Dealing with important issues first thing helps me make quick decisions about whether my day needs to be adjusted to fit in with what everyone else is doing or whether I can proceed with the tasks I already had planned.

Basic English Usage
Both yet and already are used with the present perfect tense.
  • Already is usually used in positive sentences.
  • Yet is usually used in questions and negative sentences.

    Imagine that you and your friend are going to travel. There are many things to do, and you ask your friend if he has done these things:
  • Have you bought the tickets yet?
  • Have you arranged a taxi yet?
  • Have you reserved the hotel room yet?
  • Have you packed the bags yet?

    In all the examples, use yet at the end of the question. Your friend might answer:
  • Yes, I've already bought the tickets.
  • Yes, I've already arranged a taxi.
  • No, I haven't reserved the room yet.
  • No, I haven't packed the bags yet.

    Use already in the positive answers, and yet in the negative answers.

    There is one time you can use already in questions: it's when something happens earlier than expected. If your son finishes his homework in just 15 minutes, you could ask: "Have you already finished your homework?!" because you were expecting it to take more time.
