I think this whole idea was the result of enjoying the new iOS app Mailbox. It pretty much has inspired me to try and get to inbox zero from inbox 17,000. That is no exaggeration. I wish I had taken a screengrab before I got started. But I suppose this is good enough:

I’m at inbox 2,500 right now and it feels pretty good. I think I’m going to keep plugging away. But I still haven’t figured out how to get rid of email sperm.
