PPU 059: In Defense of Inbox Zero


In this episode of the Productivity Power Up podcast, we talk more about email management, specifically the concept of “inbox zero” and why I am such a proponent of it. I recently read a few articles that outlined some pretty good arguments about how it wasn’t such a great thing, but after reading (with an open mind of course!), I still come down on the side of inbox zero. In this episode, I’m going to tell you why.
