Struggling with stars!

Peculiar blog post title 🙂 I had in an earlier post talked about ‘online maids’ but just highlighting a particular instance of the problem with mails. I just hate it when I start falling behind in emails. Especially when you don’t have energy at the end of the day. I try my best to keep starred mails or flagged mails below ‘100’.

Couple of months back I had to put a concerted effort of taking 20 mins daily for a week to reduce the number from ‘345’!! Nowadays its oscillating between 60 to 100. I would like to bring it less than 40. Bringing the number down from ‘345’ was a challenge. I had to use the divide and conquer strategy. Taking it month by month. Believe me I had mails going as back as 6 months!! And duh were my friends not surprised to hear from me after half a year.

Just spent this weekend bring the starred mails down from 103 to 54 and within 3 hours (due to wonderful replies!)  the count is back to 62. Anyway – I am done boring you folks with some anger and frustration vented out  … I see no way technology is helping us.
