Here is a fun challenge for you—set a timer for 20 minutes and delete as many emails as you can. Remember:
DO it now
DELETE it as soon as you can
UNSUBSCRIBE from what you are not reading
BE HONEST with yourself if you really need to keep it
You wouldn’t put all of your papers into one file folder and place it on your desk– why are you trying to do that with your email inbox?
Note: You should be able to delete emails older than 6 months. (Set your own limits but this is a good guideline)
