As captain america, help me out of 97 unresponsive e pos to the inbox zero

Within 24 hours, from Sunday to Monday, I went out of 97 unresponsive e-mails to my locker.

When the inbox count got into zero, it represented freedom from a 2-month cycle of mistaken optimism, anxiety and guilt. And my beloved Avenger thanked for his release ..

This post will explain how I did this and why Captain America has played a vital role, but first I have to make the tolerance-as much for myself as any of you reading this:

This veximent is true in many ways. I’m not green, I’m not more than a tank, and I can’t stop a giant flying space worm … thing … in my tracks. I can’t even.Last time I checked, my mailbox didn’ t weigh 550 pounds. However, the fact that I am not Hulk is used here as …

But I’m ahead of myself; before I explain this analogy, I need to set a scene explaining the problem …

In the last two months, I’ve been.As a result, e-mails were piling up to levels that were not easy to clean them in a day-so I simply neglected them. My carelessness eventually led to what was in the box that was holding.

Since I delete everything that is not important every day, each of these emails that remained in the box required some action-in fact, leave me with the 97 item list of cases ..

This list of cases has been written all over the other things I do-write posts in blogs, knockout, making videos, coding, etc. .. So you probably realize it was all a little bit.

-Okay, that’s the day I get all the answers!However, as Derek Sivers says, the idea is simply a cartoonist, good intentions are useful only if they are related to a meaningful action …

Unfortunately, my actions have always been brief, when my intentions guided them. Now that I can look at this cycle through crystal clear cover of the back eyes, I see a problem:

I tried to attack my e-mail like the Hulk …

Hulk likes to waving. This is about this …

In terms of productivity, the preferred solution for Hulk is simple.

He just went crazy and started attacking the problem with …

It works well when you are gamma-induced nature freaks with almost unlimited force and you are fighting giant space worms or abamiocytes. But here’s the problem:

  • We generally do not fight the Abouclimax-our problems usually require more than just a lot of blows and blows …
  • Every day I try to deal with e-mail, I would just try to fix the problem. I’ll open my drawer and allow it.

    Sometimes I decide to do it FIFO (first, first-out) to better accommodate people who have waited more time for answers. Sometimes I would go to LIFO instead. Sometimes I just pick the messages randomly …

    I always opened e-mail, realized that the answer process was complex, and it would take time, and immediately default …

    For example, one e-mail came from an old Web design client, saying their website has some problems. I opened the e-mail before trying a few simple fixes without result …

    So, trying to sew my entire box, I realized that one email would include:

  • Backing up the Web site.
  • Fry someone who knows how many hours is trying to fix the bug.
  • It will finally be in the process of it, I hope.
  • Send the client back and hope that there are no other problems.
  • It was my only task, it would be completely manageable. In combination with 96 others in my box, plus a ton of creative/actual work tasks, it’s something that will stop coarse sew on their tracks ..

    So obviously the Hulk method is useless. How did I get into the Inbox of the Zero folder?

    If you want to know why Captain America is my beloved Avenger, just watch the scene in.

    Cap can easily be the least influential member of the main Avengers (those with movies) -Tor-demigod, Tony Stark has a suit, and Hulk … Hulk, but he is also easily the best in.

    Here’s the awareness of what I had:

    Box 97 is like a large-scale alien invasion. You can’t keep him with a brute force …

    Rather, you need to come up with a well-thought-out attack plan that strategically solves problems, one by one, and effectively manage its limited resources. In this case, these resources are:.

  • Motivation/Willips.
  • Given these resources, I came up with a plan to address my inbos:

    My first priority was to take some time to reduce the total amount of emails I’m dealing with. To do this, I got rid of something that doesn’t require action, and then I went through all the letters that contained interesting information-the information needed to go into mine.

    After that, I first took over the highest priority items.  After they were finished, I ran into an email that formed the main part of my box:

    Although I get a lot of letters, I still want to answer students who don’t fuck me. However, as you can say from the “DON” note T WRITE NOVELS “, I often feel bad with brevity …

    When someone tells me a question, I will often write to them that the whole article was in answer. This is the time I could spend writing.

    So, this time, I have defined the brevity. I took this quote from my heart.

    ” You have the final number of keystrokes in your hands.

    The fact is that as many of these keys as possible need to be spent on electronic mail. Handelman advises you to store e-mail that is limited to 3 to 4 offerings longer than it should be in the blog or in the wiki …

    As I said in the Intra, I started my e-mail seriously on Sunday afternoon. By the evening of Monday, I responded, archived or otherwise dealt with all 97 e-mails and came to the “inbox”.

    I’ll be honest, even with my plan, making the Hulk have a little brute force. I knew what I needed to do, but it was still pretty hard to keep going after five straight hours of an e-mail response. And here’s the thing:

    We all need a little Hulk at us …

    We all need to cultivate this resolve to move forward-that green-needed to actually end huge projects …

    We can also use a little Tony Stark in us. I was talking about.

  • Alfred’s text nipples has allowed me to quickly insert common answers to questions.
  • Boomerang helped me archive an email I can’t answer yet-he’ll be back in a couple of days when I can.
  • I still get used to it, but KeKeyRocket helps me study Gmail accelerators.
  • Still begins with a strong suit of Captain America-planning ..

    Without a plan, the solution of a huge multi-faceted project is much more complex and requires much greater willpower ..

    When you have a direction, you only need to induce the will to fulfill in this direction. Without it, you are also patting your will to plan your next step-and you don’t have the benefit of being in your old plans (

    That’s why Captain America’s method is not just for electronic mail. If you have an out-of-control box, make sure you have a plan for it …

    But when you go to the next non-e-mail project, bring the first avenger with you …
