There is something very liberating, yet boring, about having zero emails in your inbox. A few years back, I decided I wanted to stop saving every email I ever got in my inbox. I decided that I was going to zero out my inbox and keep it that way. That way, I can use it as a type of to-do list.
Unfortunately, about 2 years back my email inbox became clogged, and I couldn’t keep up with all of what the emails demanded of me. For a long time I felt crushed under the weight of the emails, I needed to take care of. I thankfully can say after about 2 years, I am back to inbox zero.
Please comment on why you feel an inbox zero is good or bad. Or maybe why you feel every email you get, needs to stay in your inbox.
