Does it take you way too long to achieve inbox zero? Having an inbox full of e-mails that need your attention is really stressful, but I’m guessing you don’t have an extra hour per day to spend processing e-mail, right?
I’m sharing my number one piece of advice to help you keep your e-mail inbox at zero in just a few minutes a day. Ready? Here it is:
I use e-mail filters to automatically tag and archive e-mails so that they never even hit my main inbox. I filter all e-mails that are newsletters or things like that which aren’t essential for me to see right away. I have them automatically go to their own “folder” in gmail so I can look at them as I have time. Here’s exactly how you can do that. (This video mostly covers how I use filters. If you’re interested in seeing how I set up my tags, let me know in the comments, and I can do a follow up video sometime.)
