Process your email - don't let it process you...

There are 5 things you can do with email. This video will show you what to do with your email so that you control your inbox, instead of having it control you. The 5 things you can do are:
  • Delete or Archive -> to ONE archive folder
  • Delegate -> forward or email task to someone else
  • Respond -> Quick response that resolves the email in whole right then
  • Defer until later -> Defer it to some other time
  • Do something about it -> Take an action as a result of the email
If you ALWAYS do one of each of these to each email AS YOU CHECK IT your box will never take control of it. Here's the original blog post.
