Recommending Inbox Zero


Got too much email? Who doesn’t. But there is help.
The reason for this post is that Merlin from 43 folders has done a Google Tech Talk about his Inbox Zero. I share his passion for GTD, and his presentation is really worth watching. Watch Inbox Zero on google video. The slide deck is shared, too. Go!

OK, nothing so far that you could not have read in any other blog roll. So what makes this personal? When I came back from almost 3 weeks of honeymoon, I had hundreds of email. I spend 2 days at work just reading. Right now, my counters are 2 unread 130 read in the private Inbox, 35 unread 195 read in the work Inbox. That’s not counting filtered mails, where I am sure I don’t need to action on. And it’s getting worse as I type here.

Hence I am really happy about Merlin and the good folks at google to share all this with us – it’s so great to be reminded about what is common sense. I’ll put the Inbox Zero into action! Goal: Be at zero by the end of this week.
