Worry - To feel uneasy or concerned about something.In my last post I wrote about managing your e-mail inbox (in the narrow sense) and, more broadly, managing your work and commitments. I ended that last post with this quote: "If you worry about everything, then you don't have to worry about anything." At least one reader suggested that I owed them an explanation and so here it is.
You'll recall that I challenged you (and me) to get our e-mail inboxes empty at least once per week in a systematic way, as follows:
Go through you inbox one message at a time and ask yourself "Is there an action required?"
If the answer is "No", then either delete as trash, file it elsewhere for later reference or file it in your "great things I'd like to do someday but don't know when" folder. Be ruthless.
