Isn’t this beautiful?
I haven’t seen an empty inbox for years, and I love it! When it’s full I feel like I have the cares of the world on my shoulders. But when it’s empty, it’s like I’m making progress. Even if it might be illusory, I like that feeling.
So I’m going to persist in my strategy which can be described simply as:
If it’s junk, get rid of it.
If it’s someone elses problem, forward it.
If it’s worth reading, read it now, then delete it.
If it needs more info, request more info and delete it.
If it needs acting on, then act on it now, then delete it.
