    Congrats on the incredible de-cluttering!

    It’s on my to-do list to setup some engagement automations w/ tagging and then do re-engagement campaigns to work to weeding some of my list.

    It’s always hard to do when we spend so much time to build and grow an email community, but like gardening we gotta weed to stay healthy. my head knows it, gotta get rest of me on board 😆

    I hear you about the email inbox too – I make it a habit to use labels and color coding, to filter and triage – because let’s be honest, especially in the inbox with all the newsletters and marketing emails, few of them are truly urgent. Oh, the senders think they are urgent for whatever is on sale, but I gotta have discipline on my end – and usually it’s not earth-shattering if I’m late or miss something. But we gotta train ourselves there too, right?

    I admit my inbox is not zero and likely never will be – mostly b/c of way brain wired, if some things are out of sight, they become literally ‘out of mind’ – so if I archive those emails I’ll forget something I shouldn’t. Even if it’s in Trello or elsewhere. I’m sure I need a better system! And to follow my own damn advice and just ACT on the thing.

    But cheers to you for all the cleanup!
