My Discovery of “Inbox Zero”

Want possibilities and new everything? Clean up your Gmail! Well, that’s what I did.

This is how Gmail works.
BOOM!

As I watched the number of emails in the inbox go down from 3,000 to 2,000 to 1,000 and, ultimately, fall below 400 and then down to ZERO, I felt liberated. It really was like a cleansing exercise. I felt light, easy and free!! (I also emptied my “trash” folder that had 6,000! emails…)

The sorting process is quite tiring, cumbersome and annoying. The easiest way for me was to go to the oldest emails and notice the things that were “subscriptions” and I knew I had more than 1 email in my inbox. I have filtered by similar emails and then selected all (powerful feature!) and either deleted “Shift +3” (most of the time) or archived “e” (for stuff that I think I might need. )

And so, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you my first ever INBOX ZERO! Happy dance and fireworks and some “namastes” are required!
