The Secret To An Empty Inbox
If the email you are saving is important then you should print a copy of it. If you don’t think it is worth printing then it is not worth saving.
That’s it!! Simple, isn’t it? And you may be wondering, “Why does this work?” Well, when you print out the email you are likely to think, “Hmmm…that ink cartridge cost me X dollars and, damn it, I burn through ink quickly. Do I really need to print this out?” Printing the email forces you into a cost-benefit analysis. If you are willing to spend a few pennies on an email to print it out, then that email is probably worth saving so, don’t delete it.
But print it out anyway.
As a backup.
Just in case.
