Work & Career

I wrote this a few months into my first “real job” (which is now a year ago) because it seemed very relevant at the time. In fact, you’d be surprised how many people still have cluttered inboxes (1000s unread). WHY? Simple tricks to make your work/life more manageable.

As a new hire, you might already have noticed, emails land in your inbox very frequently and sometimes it may be distracting you from your current task.
