Sort your emails by “From” instead of “Date”.
It gives me a better view about which ones I should delete, and which ones I should take action on or plan for.
This simple change helped me keep my inbox eventually zero.
How can I change my “view” in different areas of my life? Could re-ordering things help me to see a new view? Or maybe changing the order of things is just all about the change itself not the specific order of things? Maybe by changing something, anything, I’m breaking the frames in my mind that are used to create the “normal” view?
