I’d like to begin this with an apology. If you sent me an email in the past four years or so and I didn’t respond, I’m sorry. It’s not that your message wasn’t important to me. It’s just that I didn’t read it. Or else I did read it but then I clicked “Mark Unread” to trick myself into thinking I didn’t read it.In fact, the more important your message, the more likely it is I handled it it this way. I wanted to give your email the thoughtful response it deserved, so I set it aside to deal with later. Then later became never....This is no way to live. So, as of today, I’m not going to live this way anymore. I’m going Inbox Zero. The minute after I publish this post, I’m going to select all 28,487 messages in my inbox and archive them. Thereafter, I pledge that, at least once a day, I will clear my inbox of everything.
Ditto. If you haven't heard from me within about 4 weeks, assume I've declared another e-mail bankruptcy and try a phone call.
