Inbox Zero @ 43 Folders

Merlin is up to his old tricks again. This time he is running a series on how to release your inner email-fu and get that inbox under control and down to zero… That’s right, zero e-mail in your inbox.
Sounds like a dream to some of you right? It did to me once as well. I thought the idea of processing 100% of e-mail that I received, being quick and nimble with that processing and keeping both my work and home e-mail inboxes at or very near zero all of the time was impossible. I am here to tell you that not only is it possible but it is very liberating and emotionally validating to have that zen like control over the center of your communicative world (For most of us, this is what e-mail is). Almost all of my tactics |were developed by practices I learned from other posts on the subject that Merlin has done in the past.
So, if you have ever wanted to achieve what I have, I could not think of a better place to start.
43 Folders Series: Inbox Zero

In the future, perhaps I will outline my own e-mail-fu, learned from many masters, which involves an IMAP account, 5 folders and a lot of hard line mercenary style choices made with split second precision. My e-mail fu is strong.
