Inbox Zero Achieved

This may never happen again, so making sure I have a screenshot and a blog post šŸ™‚

As of 12:48am on December 23rd, 2010 I have achieved the elusive Inbox Zero – for all my work and personal email. Might have something to do with the holidays / new year thing — but no bother — I’m still celebrating this achievement šŸ˜‰

    • Ouch. Do you have to respond to all 2223 ?

      Here are my tips:
      – During the day I’m constantly triaging email from my laptop and from my iPhone. Anything I can archive or delete happens immediately, and I star stuff that needs a reply.
      – I do a solid 3-4 hours of email every night when less is coming in — from around 10pm to 1 or 2am. If I skip a night, I’m pretty much a mess the next day.
      – And as a company we use IRC, P2s (, and a bit of Skype — but almost no email … so that helps.

      Most mornings I wake up to 150+ emails and if I don’t triage quickly, things would get ugly šŸ˜‰
