I’ve been maintaining inbox zero consistently for the past few months. The solution for me has been to create better inboxes. There are four consistent actions that I personally see with my email: schedule it on my calendar, put it on my to-do list, read it later, or archive it.
The Calendar Inbox
I use a combination of Google Cal to input my events and iCal to output all my calendars (Personal, Work, Girlfriend) in one view. Once I’ve converted the email into a calendar event, I quickly archive it.
The To-Do Inbox
I currently use the Any.Do app because I find the location-based and time-based reminders very useful. Once I’ve converted the email into a to-do item, I quickly archive it.
Read/Watch Later Inbox
I use Pocket because its easy to input content and outputs to all my devices (laptop, iPad, iPhone). Pocket also holds the edge over other ‘read-later’ apps because filtering between articles, videos, images, and self-inputed tags is much easier and enjoyable. And once I convert the email into a reading item, you guessed it, I quickly archive it.
How to Archive it Quickly
If you are a Gmail user, I highly recommend getting use to a few hotkeys. Go to Settings/Labs/Custom keyboard shortcuts. Enable that badboy and get familiar with ‘j’ as up, ‘k’ as down, ‘x’ to select, and ‘e’ to archive.
Hope this has been helpful!
I am proud to announce that I will be joining the Neo NYC team as their UX Designer starting this week. The process of getting to this position has been very interesting and has revealed many great lessons. Some of which I would love to share with you in this post.
Thanks for reading! And I will be sure to deliver more updates as I continue into this exciting new opportunity in my life.
