An inbox is a temporary location for storing incoming mail (digital or paper). Let me repeat that: An inbox is a temporary location for storing incoming mail.
This means as soon as it has been received it, it is no longer “incoming” and you need to process and move it to the next step in the process.
The sooner you stop using your inbox as a to-do list, database, calendar, filing system, tickler file, etc. the better off you will be. Trust me on this.
So, what is the next step in the process? Soooo Soorrryyy to do this to you but I’m going to leave you in suspense and let you digest this lesson.
Ciao for now!
