Don’t become an Email Hoarder

After waisting time over and over again frantically searching through old emails and realizing I had over 200 emails in my inbox, I quickly decided it was time to finally organize my email clutter.  Setting aside 10 minutes out of my day I started with creating folders to allot important emails that I wanted to save.  After finishing building the folders I set-out to clear my inbox and started sorting.  

As I began sorting I started to notice that I was becoming an email hoarder.  Holding onto emails that no longer had any significants in my life, many of which were several years old.  After taking a deep breath and coming to terms with my problem, I started to trash old emails one by one.  Feeling better with each delete I soon realized my inbox had dwindled down to a mere 5 emails.  My inbox looked cleaner, my email account looked organized and I felt the satisfied.
Since organizing my email account I now have an easier time finding what I am looking for without waisting precious time.  As well as staying more up to date professionally.  
Although organizing your email account may seem like an easy task there is a strategy behind it.  Below is a link to an article written by Ilya Pozen founder of Ciplex, posted on linkedin, giving tips to organizing your email.
