What do you do with your inbox when you do your email housekeeping? Or do you even do it at all?
I need to because there isn't much memory in my inbox though it is way more than when I was working in KPMG, way way more. But I still need to do my email housekeeping in order to keep my inbox lean and efficient as well as to make sure I have read and responded to all my emails.
But there are just so many of them.
I used to keep them in specific folders before but not anymore. I now follow the gmail way - I just put the emails I have attended to in just one personal folder, one or two for each year's worth, all received and sent emails. I never delete any emails.
I try to do that every week but sometimes I don't. There is just too much!
