- Archive - Do this first. Emails that fall into the ‘Don’t need to read right now’ category.
- Create Rules or Filters - This for recurring emails that come in that do not require your immediate response and you don’t need to see them in your inbox. The search function allows you to find what you need if you ever need it.
- Follow Up - Respond to every single email that requires it. Write concise emails and move on to the next. Long emails take longer to write and read.
You must have an empty inbox at the end of every day. No exceptions.
