Flip Mk.II

My brother Jan blogged about flipping the inbox as a great way to get oldest mails at the top, in turn as a way to weed out old mails, in turn as a way to reduce the number of looming mails in the inbox to zero. I did this too, and it works! Well, I didn’t actually “flip” it because Gmail always shows newest mails at the top. But I’m at zero; I only keep mails in the inbox for a day or less. New mails are either “done” right away when I check mail, or delegated to one of these folders:
* reply-now
* reply-later
* action-now
* action-later
where “now” means “the first time I have scheduled for doing mails” because I try to only be on mail at specific times, not all the time. That gives me peace in the meantime. (Perhaps I’ll turn off my cell phone next.)
