Daily Inspiration- LITHE-ING YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT
Take ten minutes today and open a new email account. Why you ask? Its going to be your “oh they want an email account to sign up for this” email. Make it simple, it can be similar to your everyday email, maybe add a “2” or something. Keep password the same or add the same change. It would seem counter-ntuitive to have a second email, as it would just be two to have to monitor, but the second email is for “everything else”. If you order something, if you need an email to sign up for an online blog, if you sign an online petition, etc any thank you’s or notifications will go to your second email, thus having your “real” email truly LITHE!! Conversely, if your old email is just overwhelmed with junk, start fresh. Then on your cell phone, just put in your personal and work email accounts. The one that gets the junk will then only need to be looked at once a week to delete delete delete. Sure, you would have to email your contacts and monitor both for a bit, but after a couple of weeks, your everyday email will be LITHE.
Another benefit, if you are tempted by the Living Social, or Yelp, or Group On deals that seem to come your way, you would only see them if you were looking for them in your “other email” account!!
Ten minutes now can add much freedom and time later.
