Ever since first or second year of law school, when Courtney showed me how I could have a clean inbox by archiving everything into folders, I’ve been a little obsessive about having too many emails in my inbox. In my prime, I could keep it down to maybe 4-10 emails in my inbox.
My current inbox total: 302 emails. It’s killing me.
Mind you, these are not unread emails. That would be ridiculous and would bug me to no end. Just emails that I’ve read, but don’t want to archive yet because I want to read the content when I have more time, or I need to follow up on it and archiving it means I’ll never remember to do it.
