First, remember:

There is no silver bullet Frederick Brooks

Its can help you or not...

Whats Inbox Zero ?

Habits to help you empty your email inbox

spend less time playing with your email and more time doing other things

Whats Inbox Zero ?

- Read - Read (after Ill answer this) - Read (mark as unread) - Read another email - Read (ow! I need to answer this) never finish...

How we play with email:

- Processing to inbox zero (move from inbox folder to pending folders)

..after with your inbox empty

- Read pending folders (delete, answer or archive the email)

Inbox Zero way:

Starting Inbox Zero

1 Improving your habits

Lying to yourself doesnt empty your inbox

Dont treat every email in your

growing inbox like a gift

Dont use email for you TO DO List

Create filters to decrease

undesirable emails

Choose the best time to process and read

Do Email Less

2 Processing emails to

Inbox Zero

Processing More than checking, less than responding

Quickly reading &doing: Delete, Delegate, Respond (if less than 2 minutes) or Move to Pending Folders

3 Reading

pending folders

Each email in pending folder

is an open loop which needs some action

Pending folders are divided to organise priorities

Remember:

You can't waste time thinking where is the best place to put

each email

You need few options to be fast

What is working for me: 1-RespondTo_soon 2-RespondTo_oneday 3-Todo_soon 4-Todo_oneday 5-ToRead 6-Archive

How to work with these folders?

Every day: Try to empty RespondTo_soon Todo_soon

When have time: Try to empty RespondTo_oneday Todo_oneday ToRead

Finally, After closing an open loop, you should move these emails to 6-Archive folder

Pending folders

Archive

Next action

Inbox Zero

Inbox Zero Start from scratch

Its impossible to process all of your email

Strategy: 1 Process the last 2 or 3 months 2 Move others emails to Archive / Oldest 3 Start Inbox Zero TODAY
