Inbox zero: reaching the ultimate e-mail goal
It is possible with a few simple steps
During a typical work day, how many e-mails would you estimate you are you bombarded with? Well, whether it is 10, 100, or even 1000, depending on your line of work, these e-mails can eventually start to add up and clog your main inbox, making it difficult to find certain e-mails or lose track of important messages you need to respond to.
With the few simple steps below, it is indeed possible to reach the ultimate e-mail goal: inbox zero.
- Unsubscribe from any marketing e-mails that do not longer interest or apply to you.
- Make use of folders to help manage and categorize your e-mails.
- Respond to simple e-mails right away and then delete!
- For e-mails that require a lengthier, more thoughtful response, star it to mark it as important and come back to it later when you have more time. But do come back to it! Set a reminder if you need to.
Remember: inbox zero doesn't mean you cannot have a single e-mail in your inbox. Rather, you want to aim for whatever number is manageable for you: 5, 10, 20—but try to aim for no more than 50.
