I have 1,700 items in my inbox. My preference, and my norm over the years, would be more like 17 items — or just what fits on one screen on my laptop.

The good news: a couple of weeks ago it was 4,800+ items, and I keep ratcheting it down every day.
2/ I don't know what it's like for you, but I find that my inbox balloons anytime I'm anxious about work. Whether it stems from anxiety, depression, ADHD, or whatever, it can feel overwhelming to go in and face whatever-it-is that's coming into my inbox.
3/ BUT: I seem to be over the hump with whatever was holding me back lately — thus the radical decrease in my inbox load over the past few weeks.

Upside: clearing it all out is a very good opportunity to review my information diet and to cull, cull, cull.

Email productivity thread

Gaining proficiency with MS Outlook has been really important in helping me accomplish as much as I have.

Now, I can usually process 200-300 emails in about 30 minutes. I’m asked frequently how I do it - I will try to explain in this thread.

It starts with being able to search efficiently and accurately. For many many years, I didn’t know how to do this. I would type a few words in the search bar and then scroll the myriad of hits till I found what I was looking for.

There is a better way.

First, go to options within the file menu and change your search setting to search all outlook items, not just the current folder. This will save you from having to tell outlook you do it with each individual search

Understanding time management allows us to focus on ourselves and OUR time.

When execs are asked about what they value the most? the answer is TIME.

Check out some tips from Dr. @Kanapicki:…
1. Do an inventory of your time in a day
2. If you have 2 more hours in a day. What would you do with it? (this serves as a goal on what you can do better)

- family, more time with friends, time to be outside, time to pick up a new hobby, etc.

Invest 1440 minutes well. Image

Soy muy fan del #inboxzero 📨 y creo que gestiono bien mi correo. Voy a hacer un hilo con algunos trucos que espero que os sirvan para perder menos y ganar en paz mental, que de eso va la #productividad 👇
Empecemos por lo básico: la redacción ✍️ No estás escribiendo una carta. Ves al grano. No pierdas tiempo tú ni me lo hagas perder a mí. Textos simples y frases cortas.

Keep it simple 👊
Paréntesis: Personalmente me gusta usar emojis ☺️ o emoticonos :) Dicen mucho en poco espacio y ayudan a dar “contexto emocional” (sí, me lo acabo de inventar) y evitar malentendidos en un canal tan frío.
