HOW TO … take control of your inbox

Ever opened your emails and instantly felt overwhelmed with all the stuff you have to do?

You need to read ‘How to Spring Clean your Digital Space‘, written by Mich Broadbent, (one of our members) … and then share it with everyone you know!

In essence, here’s how to get your inbox under control:

  1. Get comfortable with the DELETE button – there is absolutely no point in saving old social media notifications or Woolies weekly specials from 18 months ago. It is safe to get rid of them.
  2. UNSUBSCRIBE from all those promotional emails that are clogging up your inbox. You can do this manually or using an app like Unroll Me (😳game changer!!)
  3. Pick a date in the past and ARCHIVE everything prior to that date. If you haven’t dealt with it in 6 months really … are you ever going to?? You can still find the email through the Search function but it frees up the visible clutter which causes overwhelm
  4. Now that you have a fresh inbox, AVOID DOUBLE-HANDLING emails going forward. Then, schedule times to check them throughout the day when you are able to deal with them and:

👉Read ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

👉Action (ie: Reply, Add to your To Do List, Delegate) or File to Action Later⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

👉& then Delete anything you don’t need to keep

Right, who’s taking control?
