EZ Ways to Empty Your "In" Box

If you’re one of those folks who have tons of emails in your In box here are two ways to think about:
First, your computer (or the cloud) has waaaay more than enough memory to save the emails so don’t worry about’em. In fact, you can use your In box as a repository of all those old emails. Every once in awhile you can take a few minutes when someone puts you on “Hold” to call up a bunch of emails you know you don’t need and Delete them.

Or, you can take a few seconds when you look at each email and ask yourself: “Is there some Action I should take? Should I send it to a folder for later use? Do I Forward it to someone (perhaps with Delegation instructions)? Do I Delete It?”

That’s it: Action, Save, Forward, Delete. And, this simple process is a mental skill so you get better and faster at it the more you use it.

Have a great weekend! See you Monday.
