The beauty of the Positive Thinking Cafe is that I can share in a way that hopefully is helpful to you, or gives you food for thought, but at the same time enables me to challenge myself as well.
I embrace technology in all its forms, and I would say I am fairly competent and capable when it comes to making the most of the opportunities it affords me both in my business and personal life. However, I must confess my biggest weakness – a failure to weed out my email.
In my excitement about learning about many things and staying on top of various interests I have subscribed to many newsletters, blogs and alerts. In my most positive sense I feel I can truly get a lot of information, but realistically my time constraints and organization of my email accounts are not keeping up.
I feel that at this point I should share with you how many emails each of my various accounts have that need to be weeded out – I just can’t – suffice it to say they are each over one thousand. Not that I haven’t read or weeded through them, but I haven’t deleted them because on some level I thought ” oh, I need this”.
Well today’s step it up challenge is to build some time into each day to actively work on this. I am going to start with fifteen minutes of dedicated deleting a day to address this and will let you know when I reach my initial goal of under 1,000 on each account. Do you have a system or ways that you address “techno-clutter”? If so please share – I for one would be greatly appreciative!!
