Inbox Zero, Always.

I’ve been hitting inbox zero on all my mail accounts for about three years now. All incoming mail gets either:

  • Deleted
  • Put into a folder
  • Left in the inbox if action is required — and then put into a folder

The same rules goes when I work as an employee. I get everything set up and mail is processed as it comes in. Today, I decided to backup my main gmail account with a view to ditching it one day, and also because backups are good!

I now have an backup email account with ~10100 emails. All there as one big list. The plan being (until I automate it) to forward emails each day / week to my backup account.

That’s another task I was procrastinating about: done.
