A month ago, I was drowning in emails. My phone dinged with alerts. I had heart palpitations every time I tried to confront my out of control inbox. It was common for me to wake up to fifty (or more!) new emails every morning. After working all day, I’d come home to dozens of new emails. I couldn’t keep up and had a difficult time sorting the important, time-sensitive stuff from the fluff.
Today, things have changed. My inbox is manageable. New emails trickle in at a much slower pace. The stress associated with checking my email is gone.
How did I do it? By making a few, easy changes.
Some of you might be wondering why it took me so long to figure out how to do all this. I’ll admit, I’m a little behind the times when it comes to technology. I also tend to be lazy. Deleting an email is much quicker than going through the unsubscribe process or flagging spam, but in the long run, it’s a huge time saver.
