So many bloggers have been promoting the idea of Inbox Zero. This is the feat of keeping your email inbox at zero.
Hearing my blogging friends talk about having their inbox at zero intrigued me. My email inbox was always filled with tons of emails. Over 100,000 emails at one point.
These bloggers talked about the feelings they had when they saw an empty inbox. They said it was liberating. It was freeing. It was calming.
So I decided to try it for myself. I wiped out those 100,000 emails and started my inbox at zero again. Just like starting a new email account.
At first I was thrilled with my inbox being empty. It did feel freeing.
I felt like I’d made a dent in something that mattered. After all, so many others were saying how great Inbox Zero was.
