apinaud A1-2: As far as I know it was coined by productivity expert Merlin Mann @hotdogsladies #ProdChat

What’s your definition of Inbox Zero?

Thu Sep 21 00:12:00 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A1 Email inbox zero is the best way to start and finish a day — with nothing pending. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:12:06 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 Working to keep one’s email inbox as close to empty as possible. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:12:23 +0000 2017
SallyReb A1 eliminating the need for email in the first place #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:12:39 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 This is my standard operating procedure. I HATE seeing emails in my inbox. It’s tough to keep up w/ it at times. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:13:31 +0000 2017
apinaud @ArtGelwicks ha! I love that, no balance here, Inbox Zero is what give me some kind of control… I am not sure I k… https://t.co/0VrLaFftNA Thu Sep 21 00:13:47 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A1a: I could spend every day just trying to clear my inbox. It’s not a practical or productive use of my time. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:14:05 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 I get a sense of pride from seeing an empty inbox. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:14:10 +0000 2017
apinaud @SallyReb I can only dream on that… but sounds awesome #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:14:21 +0000 2017
SallyReb A1 something I have some success w at work but really struggle w in personal email #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:14:23 +0000 2017
apinaud Q2: What are the challenges to maintaining Email Inbox Zero? #prodchat https://t.co/BAHCJV6BmA Thu Sep 21 00:15:00 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck @ArtGelwicks Art, just signed up for your course! #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:15:13 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A2: Lack of control of incoming email sources. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:15:25 +0000 2017
SallyReb A1 agreed – I HATE seeing email – feels like a weight #prodchat https://t.co/FoFouul6FG Thu Sep 21 00:15:34 +0000 2017
apinaud @ArtGelwicks It is a contact challenge for me too. Still I think it is worth… maybe we should discuss on Producti… https://t.co/dLFVwcQgCk Thu Sep 21 00:15:35 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks @DrFrankBuck That’s great! Let me know how you like it! #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:15:47 +0000 2017
apinaud A2: For me is volume and the number of email accounts. I need to block time daily (and sometimes extra time weekly) #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:16:01 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 If cleanliness is truly next to Godliness, it will be my assorted inboxes that get me into Heaven. #ProdChat https://t.co/QowJd3xRLZ Thu Sep 21 00:16:12 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A2 The challenge for email inbox zero is getting obsessed with staying caught up to detriment of other work. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:16:18 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2: When things are coming in fast, you can find the temptation not to completely handle each email. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:16:29 +0000 2017
apinaud @ArtGelwicks I just send the info to my wife. I will sign up also to learn more… A digital bullet journal sounds interesting #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:16:50 +0000 2017
apinaud A2-2: It is challenging and hard work to keep inbox at zero and in control, but it is need it based on the volume of tasks we have #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:17:00 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee @SallyReb YES! And no one needs extra pounds, be they virtual or IRL. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:17:01 +0000 2017

ShannonRenee RT @apinaud: Q2: What are the challenges to maintaining Email Inbox Zero? #prodchat https://t.co/BAHCJV6BmA Thu Sep 21 00:17:30 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A2a: A full inbox does need digital decluttering. Need to find a podcast on that topic to listen to… #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:17:53 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 It’s easy for inboxes to get out of control, esp. if you have several (I have 5 active ones now). #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:18:39 +0000 2017
SallyReb A2 fear that I’ll forget to follow up or lose track of something, having email has become a reminder of to-dos #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:18:44 +0000 2017
apinaud @DrFrankBuck Agree! Sadly I have been guilty of that you begin skip the steps you know you do and you get in trouble #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:19:35 +0000 2017
apinaud Q3: How many email accounts do you have? #prodchat https://t.co/VFKVuY4sry Thu Sep 21 00:20:00 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 I treat email like snail mail…open, read and act (answer, file and/or delete). #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:20:20 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2: We start to make “half decisions,” and things get ugly quickly. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:20:22 +0000 2017
apinaud @SallyReb For me email as a reminder had never worked. something will fail and get me in trouble #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:20:22 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A3 I have two email accounts: one for home, one for the office. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:21:00 +0000 2017
apinaud A3: I manage between work, personal and family 9 email accounts #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:21:01 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A3: I have 3 email accounts. #Gmail checks them all, so they all wind up in one place. I love GMail! #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:21:11 +0000 2017
SallyReb RT @apinaud: Q3: How many email accounts do you have? #prodchat https://t.co/VFKVuY4sry Thu Sep 21 00:21:18 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A3: About eight email addresses routed into two primary accounts #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:21:19 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A3 I have 5 active emails accounts now, once I start working, I’ll have 6. There are two that are inactive.… https://t.co/DqYyTVWlAf Thu Sep 21 00:21:42 +0000 2017
SallyReb A3 – 3 – 1 for work, 1 personal & 1 for volunteer work (set to forward to my personal account) #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:22:55 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A3 I segment my emails for different purposes. I have an email just for my online shopping. #ProdChat https://t.co/GHPNUYfZXk Thu Sep 21 00:23:40 +0000 2017
SallyReb @apinaud That would put me over the edge! #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:23:48 +0000 2017
SallyReb @ShannonRenee I like you! #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:24:41 +0000 2017
apinaud @SallyReb sometimes it does 😊 #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:24:43 +0000 2017
apinaud Q4: How often do you reach inbox zero for all your email inboxes? #prodchat https://t.co/SfV8owBpZT Thu Sep 21 00:25:00 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A4: Hahahahahaha! That’s a good one. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:25:23 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A3 One of the emails is for the nonprofit we founded and I have a “professional” email address for my job search. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:25:31 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @apinaud: Q4: How often do you reach inbox zero for all your email inboxes? #prodchat https://t.co/SfV8owBpZT Thu Sep 21 00:25:55 +0000 2017
apinaud I try daily. Happens at least once a week. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:26:00 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A4: Usually the inbox is empty daily. If I am too tired to make a decision about one or two, they can hang around for a day. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:26:12 +0000 2017
SallyReb A3 I do love that Gmail allows you to respond from multiple different accounts #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:26:34 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A4 I had email inbox zero when I opened my account. Then the first email arrived, and the rest is history. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:26:58 +0000 2017
SallyReb RT @apinaud: Q4: How often do you reach inbox zero for all your email inboxes? #prodchat https://t.co/SfV8owBpZT Thu Sep 21 00:27:09 +0000 2017
apinaud @JKatzaman hahahahahaha! #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:27:59 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A4 I reach inbox zero at least once a week for each email. I set aside time on Fridays to go thru any emails that are still there #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:28:08 +0000 2017
SallyReb A4 volunteer email almost always at zero, work about 2 times a month, personal never #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:28:09 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A4 It’s important to start the week w/ clean inbox. I don’t like things to linger. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:28:56 +0000 2017
apinaud Q5: Do you use your email inbox for task management? #prodchat https://t.co/aoR58X9OKy Thu Sep 21 00:30:01 +0000 2017
prodbookgrp Did you miss a #productivity book club discussion and want to listen to it? Catch up here: https://t.co/RzMPV7N1Ys… https://t.co/bJ5DSA29ai Thu Sep 21 00:30:01 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A4 Keeping clean inboxes feeds my OCD. I hate having unheard voice mails or text messages. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:30:24 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @apinaud: Q5: Do you use your email inbox for task management? #prodchat https://t.co/aoR58X9OKy Thu Sep 21 00:30:47 +0000 2017
apinaud A5: I do not. I use #OmniFocus, #Hubspot, #Trello

Email is not for me a great task management for me.

#Prodchat

Thu Sep 21 00:31:00 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A5 I’ll intentionally not open email so the boldface reminds me that there’s a task yet to do. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:31:31 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A5: Nope, tasks go in #Todoist and #OneNote #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:31:45 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A5: Banish the thought! LOL. Tasks go on the task list. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:32:04 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A5 I have used my email for project/task management; it’s not my fave way to use email or manage my work. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:32:20 +0000 2017
SallyReb A5 email is not for me either a great task management method …… and yet I use it as such (sigh) #prodchat https://t.co/LyriIpsKle Thu Sep 21 00:32:40 +0000 2017
apinaud @SallyReb @SallyReb: Sometimes is “Do as I said, not as I do” That apply to me more than I would like to admit 😉 #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:34:18 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A5 My preferred method of project/task management are #ToDoLists and #timelines. Email is a poor (and confusing) substitute. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:34:20 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @apinaud: @SallyReb @SallyReb: Sometimes is “Do as I said, not as I do” That apply to me more than I would like to admit 😉 #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:34:52 +0000 2017
SallyReb A5 shameful confession, I email myself things to do #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:34:57 +0000 2017
apinaud Q6: What tools, apps or services can help you get to Email Inbox Zero? #prodchat https://t.co/bLBQXYJbzb Thu Sep 21 00:35:00 +0000 2017
SallyReb RT @apinaud: Q6: What tools, apps or services can help you get to Email Inbox Zero? #prodchat https://t.co/bLBQXYJbzb Thu Sep 21 00:35:42 +0000 2017
apinaud @SallyReb I email me stuff also, so I can process them better. I also ask people to email things so I can process on my time #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:35:55 +0000 2017
apinaud A6: As I said I use #OmniFocus, #Hubspot, #Trello

For long term storage I also use #evernote

#Prodchat

Thu Sep 21 00:36:01 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A6: The secret to getting the inbox empty is having places for the info to go. Having a good task manager (I use @Toodledo) is #! #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:36:20 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee @SallyReb A5 No shame, I do that to, especially if I’m away from desk and I don’t want to forget something. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:36:46 +0000 2017
SallyReb @apinaud That makes me feel better. I’m not the only one #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:36:49 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @apinaud: Q6: What tools, apps or services can help you get to Email Inbox Zero? #prodchat https://t.co/bLBQXYJbzb Thu Sep 21 00:37:11 +0000 2017
SallyReb @ShannonRenee Oh good to know I’m not alone in this #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:37:20 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A6: Forward emails to the task list. First, rename the subject line so it’s descriptive of the task. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:37:25 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A6: I forward reference info I want to hang onto to Evernote. Emails I want to keep “just in case” get archived in Gmail. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:38:13 +0000 2017
apinaud Q7: What other email management and maintenance strategies exist? #prodchat https://t.co/UseySWSl7O Thu Sep 21 00:40:00 +0000 2017
apinaud A7: I use Inbox Zero, it has worked for me and keep me moving forward. #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:41:00 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee Gotta run #ProdChat. Have a good evening folks. https://t.co/XAFmGXyIVQ Thu Sep 21 00:41:06 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A7: Gmail has what they call “Inbox,” allowing you to rename subjects and use email as the to-do list. (Cont.) #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:41:14 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A7: My problem with something like that is that not nearly all of our today’s originate as emails. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:41:59 +0000 2017
SallyReb A7 scheduling time to work on email, not checking email constantly #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:42:27 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A7: Can’t leave email open all the time. Only open it occasionally. #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:43:17 +0000 2017
apinaud @ShannonRenee have a great night @ShannonRenee #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:43:23 +0000 2017

apinaud A8: I keep it simple. Archive, Actionable, Trash. #ProdChat Thu Sep 21 00:46:00 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A8: I use Gmail’s “Priority Inbox” to segment important stuff from everything else. If it’s a busy day, I can… #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:46:50 +0000 2017
SallyReb A8 add a color star next to email if it is related to something “in process” #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:47:39 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A8: …dump a dozen emails at a time. I use very few filters and unsubscribe from mailing lists like a fiend #prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:47:48 +0000 2017
SallyReb Friends I’m loosing my phone charge, thanks for great conversation #Prodchat Thu Sep 21 00:48:25 +0000 2017
