Many of us may be returning to overflowing email inboxes ( plural makes sense doesn't it ). I systematically look at them from a urgent and effectiveness continuum. if there is something that will collapse if I don't respond ( Rarely is that the case ).to system generated emails ( Create rules and labels. More on that in a upcoming post ). This same thing goes for your personal email. Unsubscribe to anything you don't want to read. There are apps that help with that. IOS let you unsubscribe directly and emails must put that ability at the bottom.
Take the day slowly and dig out systematically. If there is someone you need to talk to, do that first. People are more important than anything you do. Focusing and depositing into colleagues, friends, and family are the fastest way to get things going in your direction.
Have an awesome kickoff to your best year ever!
