Liking “Inbox Zero for Life”
This article is originally published at https://lcolladotor.github.io/
I’ve been using the “Inbox Zero for Life" strategy for a few weeks, and I think that it’s been payed off for me in this short span.
As it’s stated in that long guide, one of the major concerns you might have is that it could end up as just changing a current problem for another one. I think that so far, that hasn’t been the case for me. Sure, my starred emails is not 0, but it stays at a steady number and doesn’t increase as my inbox (even with priority inbox) did.
I also have a few filters in place that pick up the emails that I will most likely never read. For example, advertising emails and school wide announcements.
One point I’m not sure that I buy is the whole psychological effect of having an empty inbox. But whether or not that’s true, I certainly didn’t know that the gmail app in the iPhone/iPad has a weird smiley that looks like a sun telling you something like: “Your inbox is empty. Have a nice day!”
