[twenty twenty-four day one six oh]: zero inbox

centaur 0

Okay, the Nebulas are over, and I should blog about that, and I’m a day or two ahead on drawing, which I should post when I get the website backend fixed, and I’m a day behind on blogging, so I should get caught up on all that.

But I just spent about two hours pursuing, and achieving, zero inbox across all three of my major email accounts, so I am VERY tired, and I am going to crash shortly.

Zero inbox is the discipline of clearing ALL the messages from your inbox – either by handling them, or categorizing them into folders for further action. This means what comes into the inbox in the future can be more quickly dealt with (or more easily unsubscribed from).

Now, I have a LOT of email in the folders I filed – probably hundreds of messages. But I had at least twenty thousand messages built up across all three accounts, most of which were spam, promotions, social media notifications, forum posts, or other notifications which were functionally worthless.

Now, even though there are hundreds of messages to process … they’re just in the hundreds.

And that feels way more doable.

Okay I go crash now.
