Inbox zero

For at least the past five years, I’ve been lamenting the number of emails I receive. That elusive inbox zero that so many efficiency experts talk about, but I never seem to achieve.

And, surprise, I haven’t still. Bet you thought I’d say that I made it!

Unless I delete every email and just start from scratch, it’s just not going to happen. But I am slowly, slowly, working my way through. Unsubscribing to specific newsletters. Marking and deleting junk as soon as I see it. And I always try to get to a response – when one is needed – within forty-eight hours.

Maybe I’ll never make it to inbox zero, but at least I’m on the right path.
