Do you get unsolicited emails?

I do – probably about 50 or so a day.

That is the penalty of being an avid learner. This number is unmanageable and so I have played with some ideas to reduce them:

  1. Unsubscribe Promptly – If an email isn’t relevant, find the unsubscribe link. It’s your quickest exit strategy. πŸšͺ
  2. Filters are Your Friends – Most email services offer robust filtering options. Use them to automatically sort or delete irrelevant emails. πŸ—‚οΈ. I have a folder called @priority where my existing contacts emails are delivered to by rules.
  3. Dedicate Time to Declutter – Allocate a small portion of your day to manage your inbox. Regular maintenance can prevent buildup. ⏰
  4. Use a Secondary Email – Keep your primary email for important communications and a secondary one for subscriptions and sign-ups. πŸ’Œ
  5. Be Selective with Sign-ups – Think twice before sharing your email. More sign-ups mean more unsolicited emails. πŸ€”

Managing your inbox is about taking control and making conscious choices.

With these strategies, you can reduce noise and focus on what truly matters.
