Managing Email: Overflowing Inboxes - Be liberal with...
(Page 4 of 4 )
Be liberal with the Delete key. So many people are afraid to toss out any mail, even if there's nothing else they need to do with it. Just as in paper, the question to ask yourself is, "What is the WORST possible thing that could happen if I didn’t have this email?" If it's not too bad, and if there are no legal or financial reasons for keeping it, then toss it.
Everyone has heard of the adage, "Handle a piece of paper one time only." That shouldn’t be taken at face value. Instead you handle it only once as far as making a decision right away. Then you put it in the appropriate place to deal with at a specific time. Work your email the same way and cut down on daily stress.
