New Leaf

This year I'm doing something I've never done before. I'm keeping my work email inbox empty. For years (ever since I started using email) I've been that guy who has hundreds of emails in his inbox. I never sort them out or delete them. All those messages just sit there, all read, but just wasting away yearning for a home with more meaning than simply "in."

I've found that this method of "organization" sometimes leads to messages without a response and tasks that are left undone. This year to prevent this slipping through the cracks scenario I'm keeping a clean inbox. I'm one week clean so far.

How long before I get my first pin?

Very impressive. I'm the girl who not only has over 2,000 items in the inbox, but sometimes as many as 300 UNOPENED items in her inbox. Maybe when I grow up, I can be more like you! (Anna's mom)
