Now I am learning from a bitter experience of having email overload in my inbox. There was a time when I had totally neglected to check my email for many months. What made me open it one day was an important message sent to me by a friend so I was forced to visit my email inbox. I was shocked to find close to 9,000 unread emails in my inbox. The staggering number made me avoid it more. It seemed like it was too much of work to be deleting all those junk. So I just kept on postponing the act of cleaning my inbox which I know will only make the situation worst. It made it more and more difficult for me to get rid of all those emails so one day I just resolved at last to finally go and log in to my email whenever I come online. Little by little I deleted portions of those unwanted mails every time I come online. I did it regularly because I knew that if I slack again, the number would multiply very quickly and I'd be facing the same dilemma all over again. I imagined myself climbing a very steep mountain, going so slowly, but making progress anyway. Today, I am glad to be left with only 699 emails to delete and as soon as I have emptied my inbox of all the trash and junk, I think I now could do my other online tasks more peacefully and confidently.
