Our inboxes often seem to be our worst enemies. “Lost in my junk mail folder” is the new “dog ate my homework”. We strive for the mythical inbox zero, but we seem to be losing the battle of the inbox bloat.
Let’s trying something different: How about creating your perfect inbox?
When you wake up tomorrow morning, what 5 amazing opportunities would you like to find in your inbox?
For me, I’d love to sing the Lions fight song at Ford Field or deliver a TED talk on the virtue of pissing people off or work with the BW3 leadership team (seriously, why hasn’t anyone introduced bacon wrapped wings yet) or collaborate with Sir Richard on Plan B or brainstorm big ideas for Apple retail on the chairlift between ski runs.
Dream big: Business? Pleasure? Now think: What actions should I take to make these emails actually appear one day. Adjust your to do lists accordingly.
It’s a fun exercise to add to your goal list or vision board. If you have photoshop and five minutes, use this perfect inbox template to create a pretty version for yourself.
