Email Issues Under Control

For all intents and purposes, the email issues are licked. I have 15 in my inbox, few enough that I can see them all without scrolling. I’m caught up. No one needs to be apologetic about emailing me the way a lot of podcast listeners seem to be. The issues are solved, and I aim on remaining responsive from here on out. The inbox is defined as “You need to reply to this, dude.” It will no longer be the all purpose repository for anything. Things will get replied to or not, and either filed or deleted. Having gotten on top of this and handling 800 messages in the last month, I don’t plan on losing control of this again.

    Dude, you’re inspiring me. Down to 4 in my inbox, from 400+. I, too, had the “all purpose repository” mentality.

    I’ve learned to manage e-mail, especially because the former Ops Manager @ work HATED paper and did everything via e-mail.
