Sometimes I have problems in dealing with a continuously full inbox.
I am interested in many things and receive many interesting emails from people and services I subscribed, so I must often fight the information overflow.
Information overflow is indeed stimulating, but when it is persistent may decrease my concentration.
Today an article with hints for managing this issue captured my attention.
Apart from the applications suggested to facilitate some tasks, I liked these two concepts:
- Declaring email bankruptcy
- Working towards inbox zero
Did you ever declare email bankruptcy? It is funny, I smiled when read it. Maybe one day I will, I hope not.
About the work towards inbox zero, yes, I know some people working for this honourable cause. Only one had inbox zero when she told me (don't know if she still keeps it to zero); the others never told me they reached the great "zero inbox" result.
With thousands of mails in my inbox, I never started.
Have a happy 2014 and could you have a successful relationship with your favourite information access point.http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140105222036-2954-make-email-work-for-you-in-2014-three-cool-tools
