You ever do this? You look through your email – and mark all the stuff you don’t want to deal with as “unread” because you’ll get to it later. But the thing is you never do!
You know you’ve played this game with your email too.
An email inbox is just another thing to get clogged and untidy. I know what it’s like to have thousands of unread emails and it something that can so quickly spiral if you don’t stay on top of it. I even created a whole course around it.
I’m not the only person who has tried to tackle the issues brought up by email. Ann Gomez, a productivity whiz from Canada, has recently published her book, “The Email Warrior: A Succinct, Practical Guide to Help You Corral an Unwieldy Inbox.” Like me advocates trying to keep your inbox at zero – her approach can clear your inbox in less than 3 hours!
I was thrilled when Ann asked me to write a blurb for the back of her book. Here’s what I said:
“As a big believer of lists, there is one list that I do not like – and that is a long list of emails sitting in one’s inbox. I advocate a zero inbox policy with my clients because it streamlines life and makes us more productive. The Email Warrior is a succinct, practical guide to help you corral an unwieldy inbox. Busy professionals who are inundated with email will find this refreshing formula simple and attainable.”
Her book is designed to help you:
- Process email most efficiently
- Save time for other priorities
- Take back control over email
- Spend less time on email
- Organize your digital storage
- Simplify your life
- Reduce stress
I hope you’ll check it out and that it helps you finally tackle that stubborn inbox! Let me know what you think if you do.
