See all that stuff in your inbox? Take it out. Take it all out. Stick it in another box. That's your backlog. You can even stick a big label on it that says Backlog. That's the stuff to get through as you can (look in the Audio Library for the Webinar on backlog to learn how to deal with this box.)
Now... look at your inbox. Empty, yes? Yay! Good.
So, today, stuff will show up in your inbox. Right? You put things in, maybe others put things in... it will not be empty at the end of the day, will it?
At a certain point today, maybe towards the end of the day, go through all of it, one piece at a time... process it. That means tomorrow you'll start with an empty inbox again. And stuff will collect in it. Process that stuff tomorrow. And so on.
You've got to start clean somewhere. Let's get through today's inbox, and the rest you'll process as time permits.
If you try this, let me know how it works for you... how it feels to start off with an empty inbox.
Thanks for posting!
