One of the things I did when I started to get serious on minimalism is taking the time to assess each email in my inbox. I have hundreds, if not thousands, of emails that needed my attention.
My goal for that was simple: zero inbox.
So, here’s what I did:
- The emails were evaluated of their importance.
- The unimportant emails were deleted.
- The important emails were archived.
- The trash folder was emptied.
And, voilà! Zero inbox.
I have zero text message, too.
