There’s one bad habit that most people have (myself included) that leads to
an overflowing inbox.
There’s one good habit that, if adopted, can reduce the clutter
dramatically. I’ll go out on a limb and say that this one technique,
if adopted religiously, can reduce the size of your currently unmanaged inbox
by as much as 80%.
I’ll call it “plowing through” but that doesn’t do it justice because
there’s actually rationale and logic behind it. Others refer to it as “just do
it”; a take-off on the old Nike slogan.
