I just wanted to share/remember this great blog series from Merlin Mann at 43folders.com that outlines how important it is to have a limits about who, when and how much access other people have to contact us.   Here's a bite of it.

"For myself, I think it’s critical to set reasonable expectations about how, when, and where people can expect to have authentic, honest-to-God contact with us, and here’s why: if you leave every channel open to everybody and anybody, all the time and without limit, you necessarily prevent yourself from ever stepping away from the fray for long enough to focus. You’ll never make the time that it takes to produce the sort of good work that theoretically made you so appealing in the first place."
