Getting to inbox: zero (unread)

Might be an impossible task, but still. Goals.

I am steadily reducing the number of things I am subscribed to and deleting old notifications, especially from lists.

A couple months ago I nuked the promotions tab in my gmail account, at which point my Inbox swelled to 48,000 UNREAD messages. Some have suggested I should have just deleted everything in the promotions tab FIRST, but part of the reason I was getting rid of it was there were things in there I wanted to see, in a timely manner, and letting gmail pseudo-randomly decide what to filter out of my inbox really wasn't working for me.
Before I nuked my Promotions tab, I believe my inbox already had roughly 12K unread emails in it.

Last night I got the unread emails in my inbox down below 10K.

So... that feels good.

What are your goals right now?

Have a good Monday!
