Regain Control of Your Inbox!

Overflowing InboxOverflowing emails? Too busy to read them? Did you know that a full inbox often means unopened messages, backlogged responses and unnecessary stress. Here are three SIMPLE ways to clear your inbox and your mind:

Read email in batches

Yes, do NOT scan your email only for urgent messages and leave everything else for later – that’s how you begin to get buried. Check your email at set times daily to minimize clutter. At the same time, manage your inbox by having separate folders (or labels, in GMail). It is not a good practice to have every mail within the inbox. In fact, Outlook Express has a common problem of  crashing (leading to loss of emails) when the inbox gets too big!

Use the 2 minute rule

Speed-read through EVERY email (apart from spam, of course) and decide to reply on the spot. Reply emails that are simple and quick first instead of keeping them for later. This will save you tons of time in looking for it later.

Unsubscribe

The title says it all — Unsubscribe! If you haven’t been reading the past newsletters, chances are, you won’t be reading the upcoming issue too! Get it out of your inbox! After all, most subscription services can be terminated by just a click of the ‘unsubscribe’ button.

There you go! Three very simple ways of keeping your inbox and mind clutter-free!

“Eric Schmidt, The CEO of Google and ultimate overlord of email-hoarding service Gmail deletes every email he receives, unless he’s specifically asked to do otherwise. It seems that Mr. Schmidt has no intention to use those gigabytes of storage on his Gmail account.”
