If you want to really start making an impact in 2010 then I would suggest you read this thread started by James Schramko
If you elect not to take James' advice, then at least do this:
1) Unsubscribe from all your lists
2) Re-subscribe to the top ten lists which make a meaningful difference in your I.M life, using a different/dedicated email address.
3) Then you are able to catch-up on "the latest" in a production-like manner i.e. at a designated time of the week rather than just "ad-hoc" (which can suck up a a lot of time)
Wishing you all the best for the year. Go forward and prosper!
