I admit it, I am a hoarder. Ok, not in a material way, but with some mail account I am.
The good thing about it was I could today feel again the joy of digital minimalism. I cleaned out a mailbox with like 3000 mails.
A tactic for this is simple. Delete everything that is older than one year. Nobody will ever need that. (Probably you can delete anything anyways, but I am not that brave...)
The hard part comes now, maintaining that clean state. I have a daily routine in my workday which I use to maintain some order, where I am approving and signing stuff. From now on this just has another checkpoint; doing email for 5 - 10 minutes.
If you haven't heard it, you will hear it now; Minimalism is simple, but not easy.
See you tomorrow!
