You CAN tame your inbox and it’s easier than you think.
An out-of-control inbox happens when we lack a clear evaluation method — a filter that helps us make a clear decision about each email.
So, try this…
Ask yourself this “filter” question when you’re running through your emails:
Save, trash, forward or respond?
Save is for low priority emails you can read later. Store these in a separate folder.
Trash is for junk, obviously.
Forward is when you need to delegate action tasks to someone else.
Respond is for messages that need a direct response from you.
It’s ridiculously simple… and it absolutely works!
And one more thing…
Don’t waste time constantly checking your inbox. Set aside blocks of time to focus on your work and check your email at specific times in the day. You’ll be a lot more productive this way.
So, go into your inbox right now and ask yourself, “Save, trash, forward or respond?” What happened? Leave a comment!
