As an online business owner, reaching inbox zero may seem like a daunting task, maybe even an impossible one...
But I do it every day.
Yes, I get plenty of emails every single day, and still, I get to see this beautiful image at the end of my workday .
Today we are going to discuss how I decluttered and organized my inbox in a way where I can achieve inbox zero every single day.

When I first decided to have a clean and organized email, I literally deleted everything. Now that may be a little extreme for you. But think about this, most people, like the old version of me, would have so many emails just sitting in our inbox that have been there for months or even years.
So I thought to myself if there's an email in here that's really that important, I would have either:
Have you ever tried to follow a diet? And maybe you just kind of gave up on it? Because the food got boring. It was just too hard. You had a bunch of cravings or you just got kind of stressed out from it, maybe had consistency for about two weeks or so but kind of just threw in the towel lost motivation and fell off the wagon, and kind of just went back to those old ways.
Even though you've tried you just keep trying because you want to be a healthier version of you so that you can reap the rewards of being the healthiest version of you.

Are you constantly getting asked to do something?
Do you ever feel that you’re getting stretched too thin?
How often are those things actually related to what you’re working toward or to what’s most important to you?

In today’s lesson, I’m showing you how to use Google calendar effectively by going through my personal calendar and giving you some ideas on how you can maximize your day based on your internal clock.

What most people do wrong is they don't use their calendar as a productivity weapon to slice through the chaos of the outside world. You have dreams and ambitions and without a solid structure, based on your uniqueness, you won't be able to make those dreams...
