Today is a slow day – Friday after a bank holiday (Ascension), which most people here take off from work (including myself).
Time to appreciate my inbox. My empty inbox, that is.
Ever since I came across Inbox Zero, I tried to stick to it, most of the time. According to its inventor, Merlin Mann, it’s not so much about reducing the number of Emails in your inbox, but about reducing the time you’re thinking about the things in your inbox. From personal experience over many years of working I can fully and wholeheartedly agree – an empty inbox makes your day much less stressful!
I’ve settled on Outlook, Tasks, and OneNote to manage my work, but it’s not the tooling that makes the difference, it’s the mindset.
Give it a try – you won’t regret it!
