I feel overwhelmed what can I do? Yes, Asana allows you to get rid of most emails to bring clarity. But many bad practices or lack of clean-up can generate an overwhelming feeling. Here’s how to address the situation.
Remove notifications from tasks due today, in the profile settings > hacks
Clean up your My Tasks view
Unfollow projects and tasks massively, using the profile settings > notifications > Manage project notifications + skimming through the Inbox
Setup task auto-promotion using Rules in My Tasks and push to Later anything due in the future
Use my Tip of iceberg trick if applicable: only assign yourself on the next task for a big project, not on all tasks
Use Parking projects to store unimportant or unurgent tasks, and if possible unassign from yourself
Use a fire emoji on urgent tasks to make them stand out
Challenge custom colors impacting your clarity within projects
Delete stuff you’ll never do. If it’s important, it will come back.
Delegate as much as you can to the appropriate person
Anything I missed?
