About that inbox …

March 29, 2018

How’d THAT happen?!
It was the easiest thing in the world to drop things in my inbox with the best of intentions. Things to tend to later; one, two, maybe a few at a time.
How it happened, I don’t know, exactly, but with zero effort (maybe that’s the problem) it steadily filled to overflowing, becoming a major annoyance.

“No more,” I said, and
began thinking of my inbox as an on ramp.
While I haven’t posted No Parking sign there, the mindset is the same.
My inbox is not to be a storage container. File. Parking Lot.
I don’t let things stay here. It’s

  • Do it NOW (“No One’s Waiting”)
  • Schedule it, or
  • Pitch it.

Life’s too much fun to let an overfull inbox ruin a good day.


(In case you’re wondering, yes, that Inbox picture was staged.)
