The concept of Inbox Zero was introduced by Merlin Mann, an expert when it comes to productivity. Let’s talk about the basics of Inbox Zero. First up, you may want to know that the “zero” in “Inbox Zero” does not indicate a number of emails left unread. However, it indicates the amount of time one should invest in their respective email inbox.
Inbox Zero aims at making a person realize that the inbox should not be confused with the to-do list because when that happens, productivity suffers. In simple terms, checking the number of emails left to be replied to should not be a hassle anymore.
