“Everyone talks about inbox zero, but I just found it impossible to maintain. However, I wasn’t letting important emails slip through the cracks, I wasn’t feeling stressed out about the tens of thousands of unread emails in my inbox, and I wasn’t wasting too much time in my inbox every day, despite receiving 500-plus emails per day. Why, then, was inbox zero so important? I decided that I’d rather develop and stick to my own routines that worked for me, rather than blindly follow the advice of other experts. When done right, this can alleviate anxiety and can drive you to continuously improve your own self-developed habits and processes rather than rely on others to establish them for you. Design your own routine that works for you.”
