What’s in your inbox?

A quick productivity tip.

This is my email inbox.

What does yours look like?

Process your email just like a paper inbox.  Don’t be a slave to it, process it a couple of times a day, and every email you read gets put in your system and moved out of the inbox.  If it’s under 2 minutes, handle it.  If it needs to be read later, put it in your ‘to read’ folder.  If you need to do something with it, put it in your ‘to do’ list.  If you need to schedule it, put it in your calendar.  If you might need the information later, put it in the appropriate reference file.   If you read it, don’t need it, and don’t need to do anything with it, delete it.
