Is zero inbox possible

Is a zero inbox possible?

An article prompts me to now share what i’ve quietly been doing for nearly a year. So it isn’t some pie-in-the-sky goal or desire. It’s a fully developed habit.

Every day since July 4, 2015 (inspired by preparation for a week-long writer’s retreat on Sanibel Island), i have gone to bed with zero emails in three folders.

1. Inbox
2. Sent folder
3. Trash folder

Impossible is only so until someone reaches a breakthrough.

Is it challenging and difficult more than 50% of the time?


But not doing it means email management is challenging and difficult 100% of the time.

Pick which hard and challenging you want to live with.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
