    Who doesn’t want life to be simpler? I certainly do. Simplification means something different to everyone. But in today’s busy society, simplification is a challenge we all face. Let’s work on reducing and eliminating things we don’t enjoy and making room for things we do.

    Inbox: Defined

    Sunday, December 12th, 2010 at 10:46 AM

    You most likey use an inbox (physical, digital etc).  So here are some tips on getting the most from your inboxes.

    What an Inbox is not:

    A storage spot – Your inbox is not a storage spot. It’s not called a Stay-box. It’s not meant to store things for any longer than absolutely necessary. If you have items in your inbox that are older than a few days, either you are really behind, or you are using your inbox as storage. Shame on you!

    A contact database – Your inbox isn’t meant to keep track of all your contacts. Use an address book for this. If you find yourself keeping messages in your inbox because you don’t want to loose someone’s email or phone number, don’t. Save it in an actual contact database and archive the message.

    A to do list – Nope, your inbox isn’t a to do list either. There are better ways to make a to do list from your inbox items which we will touch on later. Read how to get your inbox to empty….coming soon.
