Death Struggle with Inbox

Okay, I straightened up my chair, flexed my fingers, and bore down for two hours today to empty my email inbox. I’ve now plowed through 277 non-spam, non-bulk personal emails, responded to all of those requiring responses, and I’m down to five remaining messages, which will soon be gone.

An empty inbox is a happy inbox.

As an aside, if you were expecting a response from me and didn’t get one, that may mean that in one of frenzies of pressing “Y” in Gmail I somehow nuked yours without responding. Sorry. Try again.

    If you’re having issues managing your email – recommend you take the time to read ‘Getting Things Done’. Usually don’t go for the self-help books, but this one was good.
