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
Choose the best time to process and read
Do Email Less
2 Processing emails to
Processing More than checking, less than responding
Quickly reading &doing: Delete, Delegate, Respond (if less than 2 minutes) or Move to Pending Folders
Each email in pending folder
is an open loop which needs some action
Pending folders are divided to organise priorities
You can't waste time thinking where is the best place to put
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
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
