Ok ok, last photo of a camera for a while I promise. I got on a roll tonight and completely emptied my inbox, leaving no real time to create an image for the post.
Maybe that doesn’t sound like a big deal, but seriously you have no idea. I think I culled something like 3,800 emails. Granted many of those don’t matter but, I still have to go through them because for some reason my mail filters have gotten completely hosed. Somehow it started labeling 98% of my incoming mail as “important” and that made my email life pretty much impossible. Even with some pretty solid filtering I still blindly deleted about half of them.
The hope is that I’ve got it all situated now but I know that I’ll have to keep tweaking it for a while until things get back to manageable.
The worst part of it all was seeing how many people I missed getting back to because of how bad things in the inbox had gotten. That’s a really bad situation for any business owner, obviously.
I think the next thing to tackle would be my contacts list but I have to be honest. I’d be better off paying someone to do that cause I don’t think I have the stamina. If any of you have a suggestion on good ways to pare down something like that quickly…let me know, I’m all ears.
See you tomorrow,
