Organize your Life…Organize your Inbox..?
If I’ve been a little MIA lately, its because I started a new job and my wife is almost 8 months pregnant. I apologize for taking a hike. I’ll be around as much as I can; but can’t make a lot of promises.
I noticed this interesting article over at Thoughts and really wanted to point it out. Jon Westfall has written an interesting article on managing your inbox. If you’re like me, you get literally, hundreds of messages a day. My BlackJack is constantly going off telling me I’ve got a piece of mail from someone at the office, or in one of the other 2 POP accounts that I monitor on it.
At any given time, I’ve only got at most 2 days worth of mail in my inbox. If I let it go, even for any longer than 3 days, my life becomes impossible to manage. Like Jon, I’ve got to keep my inbox organized. If I don’t, then I may as well give up. By the end of the week, I’ll have well over 1000 messages in my inbox, and I won’t be able to find a thing.
What about you? What’s the best way to organize your messages? I’d love to hear what you have to say.
