Yesterbox: Ignore today’s emails & deal with yesterday’s first. Feel less overwhelmed?

Tony Hsieh’s, Yesterbox recommends to“Delete, file or forward” incoming emails, what a thought! For someone who is forever inundated with emails, such a process is unlikely. Years ago, the Technology Office informed me that I led the Foundation with 367 incoming emails/day. I have yet to find a solution. Recently, I learned that a colleague told her staff that she would not read emails beyond two lines. Brilliant, if not realistic. This mandate can only be successful should it become entwined in the corporate culture. BTW~ Allocating three hours every morning to read emails is a farce.
