My inbox is 500 emails strong and growing. . . and that’s just one of my email accounts! I decided I needed to do something differently and found this video by Merlin Mann of the blogs 43 Folders, about “ﬁnding the time and attention to do your best creative work” and Inbox Zero about getting your life back!
You really only need to watch half of Merlin’s practical talk, about 30 minutes. If you would rather read something, “Yes You Can Stay On Top of Email” by Michael Hyatt covers basically the same concept. These men do offer additional tips, so I recommend both the video and the article. I’m keeping this short so you can get started.
I also recommend Xobni, a free add-on, as a search tool for Outlook.
