    I like the idea of ‘processing’ in the moment rather than filing away…I have an inbox and I’m going to sort through it and then find a place for it in the basement! Thank you for your inspirational ideas!

      Thanks, Vicki!

      It’s incredible how design tweaks like table vs desk can make such a difference in helping us take on one habit over another. Continuing my reflection on this, I recalled once hearing about a strategy for going through a full email inbox. The person said to go through each email, from oldest to newest, and you do one of three things. Delete it, address it, or archive it. If it’s irrelevant to your goals or work, delete it (and unsubscribe wherever applicable). If it requires you do something, do it now or delegate. If it’s just something that needs to be kept in your records, archive it. Recently, in a video by Ali Abdaal, he took the store it part to a digital level. He suggested taking a picture/scan of the document and uploading it to Evernote for easy future retrieval.

      I’m glad that this post helped you in some way. Make your week great!
