Inbox Zero. The practice that productivity gurus swear by. The habit that many say you must adopt in order to be successful. I applaud the people who are dedicated to the system and find that it helps them. But for me, it’s always been a source of anxiety rather than an achievable goal.

So I created something different. My ultimate, not at all patented, but highly effective email system. This is the GO — SLOW — NO Method.

My stoplight approach to email: GO, SLOW, or NO
