A Diet for Email

Recently I have begun to realize that I spend far too much time going through my inbox. To be sure, 500 unread’s is not manageable, much less 1000. In an effort not only to simplify, but to allow me not to be overwhelmed on a daily basis, I had to put my email on a very strict diet. This is no easy task, as many of the lists I’m subscribed to are invaluable – or at least so I think. So once a day, I have to unsubscribe from a list, or tell a friend to take me off their distribution. If you have this problem, I’d like to hear how you handle the flood of email.
