    4 Tips On Taming Your Email - Leave ONLY messages...


    (Page 3 of 3 )

    Tip #4 – Leave ONLY messages that you need to act on in your “Inbox”

    Having an Inbox with hundreds of messages will overwhelm anyone. And being in overwhelm is not going to help your productivity or your mind-set. So, if you still have to read that 10 page email you received, leave it in your Inbox until you have read it and know what you have to do. But if you’ve already read that concise one page message from your boss and answered her question, then either delete it, or move it to a subject folder.

    When I was in the corporate world, I had an objective of keeping my Inbox to fewer than 30 items because I know that I would start to feel out-of-control when there are too many items in there. And I would feel very proud of myself when I get the list to 15 or fewer because that meant that I was very close to getting “caught up”.

    There you have it - these are the top 4 things I do to keep my email under control. If you found this information useful and would like more tips on this subject, let me know (via email, I suppose) and I’ll let you in on more of my secrets in a follow-up article.
