Several months ago I watched a YouTube video on “Inbox Zero”—and have succeeded, ever since, in not having any email in my inbox. I do have email in a variety of other folders however, more hidden from view.
Emails to be answered in the “Answer immediately” file: 11
In the “Answer as soon as possible” file: 24
In the “Letters from readers” file: 16
I’m going to try to file those numbers down today. Wish me luck. Between hosting three out-of-town teens, reviewing French for the class that starts tomorrow, and refining a reading I’m giving on Wednesday, I doubt that I’ll have much time.
