Unsubscribe

I know there are apps and tools that can help me do this, but I kind of enjoy the process of reviewing certain email subscriptions and either unsubscribing from it or keeping it. It’s very much like when I edit my closet: to keep this dress or not keep this dress. That is the question. And most of the time, anything I haven’t worn in 6 months has to go.

Same thing with email subscriptions: if I haven’t made time to read the email or I find that I automatically delete it without reading it, I probably should just unsubscribe. But what’s the big deal with this? Why am I paying this any mind?

Yesterday, I almost deleted an email from a prospect client because when I skimmed through my inbox, I thought the client’s email was one of those recruiter emails telling me about a job opening that also asks I forward the email to anyone who I think would be a good fit for the position. I couldn’t differentiate between a client message and junk email because I have too many messages in my inbox.

Unsubscribing I shall go. Besides, why would I want messages in my inbox I don’t read or even acknowledge anyways? It takes up time deleting them and distracts from the messages I should be focused on. And since we’re all together trying to crush 2020 with our head start over these next two months, we don’t need no distractions.
