Once again, my email inbox has become a chaotic mess of client questions, to-do items, and things I may want to read later. A few times a year, I manage to get it all cleaned up (inbox zero, ftw!), but within a few weeks, it’s out of control again.
Part of the problem is that I have multiple email addresses. Personal, business, client-specific, support desks…the list goes on. But a bigger issue for me is that I don’t follow the proven email management rules, such as those in this article by Brian Tracy.
