Over the years I’ve heard a lot about the idea of Inbox Zero… getting your email empty every day. I would say that I often do feel like a prisoner to my email and the thought of emptying my inbox daily sounds a little exciting. I just swtiched my work email to a Google Apps account. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll be “importing” email over or just starting completely fresh (we’ll see).

So, as of last night I had 16 emails that had come in, but zero emails in my inbox. I love gmail’s archive feature. The emails are there, just not in the inbox. They’re searchable and if I click on “all mail,” I can see them all. The idea of starting fresh is really appealing. Do any of you out there use the GTD or Inbox Zero method. Any thought? Any advice?

Don’t make fun of the silly theme (Jonathan Cliff), it’s a temporary thing.
