Over the past two years, I’ve been working on refining my workflows and making small adjustments to how I handle and process information. One of the chief areas of concern has been e-mail. I know I’m not alone in feeling overwhelmed by e-mail and one of the habits I’ve been trying to implement has been something called Inbox Zero.
It may only last a nanosecond, but I had to take a screenshot just to mark the milestone.
Granted, the purpose of Inbox Zero isn’t just about having an empty inbox. It’s about processing the information and getting it out of the inbox into something more useful. My processes have been getting stronger and stronger and today I hit zero.
Here’s hoping I stay there.
OMG! I can only dream of that! I got down to like 50 in my personal inbox one time, but now it’s back up. You may have to send tips on these processes of which you speak! I’ve been making increasing use of filters in my email to categorize & put emails in specific folders and while this does help to keep my inbox cleaner, I then have trouble remembering to look into those specific folders. Fail! 🙁
Ending the day with 4 messages. I’m just out of brain cells to process any more mail. 🙂
