One choice eliminates endless possibilities, that’s why choosing is so scary. As much as we’d like to postpone choices in order to keep our options open, abstaining from choosing is also making a choice, it’s usually a choice to give up control.
The right thing is not necessarily a good thing, sometimes it’s just the least bad alternative, and when you find yourself resorting to a lot of least bad alternatives you might want to stop and think about where your life is heading.
Why do you need this?
In today’s world, a lot of business communication is happening via email. We do not have time or patience to sit down and talk on the phone, and a lot of people like to have things “black on white” instead of just floating in the air (like with a phone).
This leads to overfull inboxes.
Once your inbox reaches a certain size you start getting anxiety over what actually hides in the pile of musts and to-dos. Did you forget something important? Was there an email from your boss? How about that project that seems to be stuck? Was there a mail from them?
As the anxiety grows your aversion grows with it, and in a worst case scenario, you stop using email altogether. I’ve seen it happen more than once!
I am going to show you a way to keep your inbox empty and at the same time keep track of what emails need attention in what project/from what customer. And all by a press of a button and a drag-and-drop of the email in question.
Well, all you need is an installation of the desktop version of Microsoft Outlook and some time to set it up.
