I value myself on being organized and able to manage multiple projects, timelines, and execute to the needs of my clients – with the exception of my dreaded inbox. Email management is my arch nemesis and biggest time suck.
I wish the solution was something as easy as asking my supervisor and peers for their tips and tricks in this area. What I learned from this is that we ALL struggle in this area in some aspect and there is no magical solution.
Why is email management so difficult? We can complete this task from anywhere that we can access our email and it shouldn’t require too much, if any, collaboration or team work. So it should be straight forward, right?
Hubspot created an article, “4 Unique Strategies for Reaching Inbox Zero”. I plan on implementing and testing these for Outlook during our busiest time of the year – 4th Quarter. I hope they will provide relief and increase my sanity. Stay tuned for my follow-up on my results and feedback to Inbox Zero.
