Can improving your inbox improve your life?


Have Gmail in particular?  I’m not tech savvy enough to give you rescue and “life hacking” pointers on how improving your inbox can improve your life for any other platform.

I found this :  and this: article on the subject and since I joke more than once a day when checking email on the mac or on my iphone that I am doing “email triage”- I was open to learning about new features that would provide virtual “baskets” to sort my incoming mail beyond just “inbox” and “junk.”

Here’s a youtube link : literally walking you through in in case you’re a little overwhelmed or completely freaked at any possibility of losing precious emails in the transition (I’ve become religious about keeping contacts, email pages refreshed and drafts saves after multiple phone and computer glitches, so far, it’s been a good habit, albeit a little ocd, to have).

I tried it out early this am and have to admit, halfway through the day, that it’s keeping my email responses more focused and when I have some spare time to see what coupons etc. I may have been emailed, I don’t have to flip through them to find pertinent MUST DO NOW items.  It’s like having an email concierge.  I’m anticipating a few glitches, however.  I’m sure something slightly more important than junk mail will wind up in a low priority basket, so there will still be pretty frequent checks to ensure the system is running smoothly.  

Hope you give it a try, it’s nice to have one more thing on automatic, especially with the bambino on the way!  Hoping to have as many systems as possible in place to keep things humming smoothly.  I was asked this week about maternity leave and I joked in the real estate world of self-employed folks, it’s non-existent.  That, and I am fairly certain when up for middle of the night feedings and I can’t go back to sleep, emails will be checked and blog stats references and cataloged. . .some habits are hard to break and some tricks, no matter how great, are difficult to teach old dogs. 

Hope summer is treating you well!
