Here’s another tip for getting your In box down to a sane number of emails: Every month spend 10 minutes deleting old emails.
Or, delete old emails while you’re on Hold on the telephone.
Or, sing Happy Birthday to You! and delete old emails in the amount of time it takes you to sing the song…or any song.
Or, delete old emails for as long as you can hold your breath.
Or, you make up any gimmick that works for you.
Anything that gets your emails down to a reasonable number is a good thing.
