Am I the only one that doesn't really care about what's in my inbox. Never have, and it doesn't bother me at all. I have better things to do, in all honesty.
Also, I am getting nearly 200 emails daily and what really matters is search speed.
Archive and even folders make it slower. So yeah, unreads are treated as kinda to do, reads as void.
No labels, no favs, no nothing. Search rules.
That's a fair point, honestly. It might just be that I am a control freak. 😙
Seriously, I think it boils down to personal preference. I have a lot of emails, notifications and requests of all sorts all the time. Keeping a clean inbox helps me keep track of what's done, what's being done and what's left to do, so that's why having a zero email inbox goal suits me.
The student friends I'm mentioning in the post were actually having issues with the high volume of email, and they told me switching to Inbox Zero (or a variant or however we want to call it) has helped them.
The point is — while the workflow suits you, I suppose there's no need to overthink it. 😄
Yeah I guess whatever works to keep your head in the game. Mine is just ignoring the numbers 😀
