Everyone these days seems to want to be a ninja. Every time you look on the Craigslist jobs lists, there are a hundred ads screaming “Marketing Ninja Wanted!” or “HR Ninja Needed!” or “Ninja Escort Where Are You?”
For the most part, Ninja seems to mean “I want to pay you no money but divert your attention with hip-sounding compliments.” No thank you.
But in this case, I wouldn’t mind being a high level Gmail Ninja- it’s worth getting proficient at it. Same argument for getting a good mattress- hell, you’re going to spend half your life on it!
The blinged-out kind people at Google have put together a Quickstart Guide dubbed “Become a Gmail Ninja” and organized it with belts. How… cute?
Whatever- it’s a well-put-together list that might teach you a few trips. Though it might kill you with faddiness first.
