A dirty word called 'work' I don't know about you but I get inundated by promotional emails almost every day. I guess I'm partly to be blamed for getting into this kind of situation.
About 50% of them are spammy emails with ludicrous offers that only a noob would entertain. The other half being newsletters and ezine stuff which I have subscribed but can't remember when I had keyed in my email address on the subscription forms to get them delivered.
Thanks to my generosity or rather stupidity, now I have to make it a daily task to check the inbox and expedite the termination of these spams and other redundant emails that are beginning to get under my skin.
Oh well, what I'm trying to say is that if you are in a kind of similar situation like me, it's better to do things early rather than be sorry later.
Procrastination is not a good idea because if you doze off you will find a huge pile of emails up to your neck! That means you will be terribly bogged down clearing them. Just imagine yourself scooping snow in your driveway and backyard while your missus watches from the window!
Okay, I'm just exaggerating with this rambling, but truth be told - it's not very hard to spend a little time checking your inbox each day. By doing this you will maintain a clean and uncluttered inbox. Is it so difficult to do?
There I have implied the dirty word "Work". But this kind of work is a piece of cake if you motivate yourself to dig in with a sense of discipline. Believe me, it doesn't raise half a sweat if you stick to this routine. Goodbye, email clutter! - Markk
