Inbox Zero-ish

Today I hit the “I….Declare….Bankruptcy!” button on my email inbox.  I took all my emails earlier than March 1st and put them in a “Cleanup” folder.  Out of sight, out of mind. (But still available if I ever have to go looking for them.)

22CrThe fresh white screen of an empty inbox is so soothing. I know dealing with emails is like playing whack-a-mole – the more you clear, the more pop up.  But getting rid of 1000+ emails that obviously aren’t all that important (or else I would have responded to them before now) is such a relief every once in a while.

Now only if I could do something about those moles in my backyard…

    Congratulations on mail-purge-ishness! I do that once in a while but it still kind of feels like ‘unfollowing’ someone. Then i realize I have emails from 2008 hanging around and I wonder how necessary that really is.

    Other than that, I got nothin.

    Cool! I wish that were a possibility. I keep mine quite low but now that I have a caseload of approximately 400 men (not all need immediate work but those who do, it’s Intensive and literally dealing with their liberty versus public safety), I foresee some real nightmares in email bloat!

    I’ve spent the past year aggressively unsubscribing from things to reduce my junk email. But, yeah, those “wipe it ALL out” moments can be extremely satisfying, esp if they’re your office inbox!!
