I am bursting my buttons with pride, as I report that I have achieved Inbox Zero each and every day since January 2. That’s 38 days in a row that I’ve handled each message that’s come into my email inbox.
I think I’ve been able to do this for two reasons:
I’m especially proud that I’ve been able to keep this up given that I’ve been out of town for the last few days. I’ve had no trouble staying on top of details, since I’ve been at my computer most of the time on my work retreat. But what’s amazing me is that at the end of the day, I’m remembering to do it.
A big part of that is my daily habit of reporting to my pal Aby Garvey about my success with my email. That just might be the mortar that’s holding all this together. Knowing she’s expecting an email from me (and receiving hers) helps me remember to take the time to clear my inbox.
A year ago (heck, a few months ago), I would have thought this impossible.
Do you have any seemingly impossible habits ls you could put your mind to?
