If you are like me checking your email is not only a daily chore, you could say it's even an addiction that consumes hundreds of valuable hours of our time every year.
The thing is as much as I hate email, dealing with it is a necessity in order to run my business. I used to struggle keeping up with it. My inbox was a mess with hundreds of emails that would go unread for weeks and sometime forever.
Eventually I had enough and decided to take control and find an effective way to manage my inbox. It took me a while to develop the right habits and figure things out but eventually I did and for the last 5 years I've been able to reach inbox zero every single day except for two trips (one to Machu Picchu and one to the Amazon jungle).
Is this course for you? If any of the following statements is true for you then the answer is yes.
- My inbox is a mess
