Deleting all folders in my mailbox! Are you kidding me?

New Year, new challenges. Since over 5 Years I’m following the stress prevention concept of a clean inbox. The idea is simple. No mails in the inbox means no problems and worry to care about.

This concept works great. But I had years ago a big time consumer implemented. I’ve introduced a folder structure. And it was a clever folder structure. Why was? Because this structure was always accurate in the moment I organized and reorganized it. But only a day after the structure was outdated, because of external influence like “New Projects” or a new situation in the company or my life.

During the last year have I try to watch my self-acting with my folders in the mailbox. Do I use them often or how do I search a particular mail or information?

I was surprised in over 90% of all my work im switching between Inbox, sent and all documents. Sort by date or by Sender and if this didn’t fit, I use the full text search. So why hurt my time with this time-consuming putting mail in to folder?

Its time to say goodbye to all my folders and welcome my new 00. DONE Folder.
