Day 28. Process your email inbox to empty. You’ll need to answer all of your emails eventually, so why not do it today? An empty inbox is a welcome sight for any blogger...
Oh boy... this one is going to be a doozy for me . I just glanced over at my Inbox and I currently have 1271 emails that need my attention. Confirmations and junk mail are automatically filtered out, so that number represents the actual number of messages I need to process.
For todays task I'll be referring back to my own advice on the topic:
And also plan to check out this post by Timothy Ferriss:
Fortunately many of the emails currently in my Inbox can be processed rather quickly. Much of what I subscribe to can simply be deleted or moved to another folder in case I want to browse it at a later time. I doubt I'm going to miss anything major I cant easily look up if/when I need it.
For the rest, I use a copy & paste file to quickly process emails regarding orders, or the types of replies that dont require a personal response.
It will still be a bit of a job to get through this task today. What about you? I'm curious how many emails you have sitting in your inbox, and whether you feel this is something you'll get done today?
I'm off to get started on it myself. Who knows - we might just find a nugget of gold hidden in our inbox
