Get control of your email…5 simple ways

by Maria Gracia Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest Organizing Technology is available. One of the questions I get all the time is, “How will I ever catch up with my email? I have thousands in my inbox!” Here are 5 simple ways to get control of your email once and for all. 1. If you have thousands of email messages in your inbox, highlight everything older than 10 days ago, and click DELETE. This may sound extreme, but it’s the quickest way to start fresh. 2. Once you’re down to 10 days worth, skim each message, immediately deleting anything that’s spam, you’re not interested in, or doesn’t pertain to you. 3. Move email you’ve read (and need to keep) into categorized folders. But be careful about what you keep. Be aware though: most email can be deleted once you’ve responded to it. 4. If an email can be responded to in less than 3 minutes, respond to it right away. Then, delete the original. For email requiring more than 3 minutes, work on those during a designated “email time.” Set aside 20- 30 minutes each day on your calendar for this purpose. 5. Don’t allow more email to come into your inbox until it’s empty. This means it’s imperative for you to handle it daily. If you’re getting way too much email to do this, it’s time to get off of mailing lists, use spam filters, and/or change your email address and start fresh. Back to Organizing Technology Index
