Keeping your productivity systems alive and well is an important part of being effective and knowing what you should or shouldn’t be working on. A huge problem that comes up is that we sometimes get overwhelmed by all of our life’s inputs. Too many emails, phone calls, voicemails, text messages, Facebook Likes, or blog comments can clutter up our thinking and potentially make our goals and vision hazy.

The state of Inbox Zero can solve this by allowing your head to be clear of all of the stuff that is holding you back. You will have all of your stuff in the right place to work on later and will have a new sense of creative a productive energy as a result. This Lesson will show you how to easily achieve that state and how to maintain it going forward.
