#inbox0 tip 1: Your inbox is NOT your task list. Decide what to do the FIRST time you open an email, and then Archive, Archive, Archive!
Many of us keep emails in our Gmail inboxes to remind us to do something later. Maybe you star it, or use Priority Inbox so that it drops to the "read and important" label. You should never open an email more than once before you decide what to do with it. Decisions take energy, and you are wasting yours looking at the same emails again and again.
To get control of your inbox keep your tasks in a task list, NOT your in inbox. Gmail makes this easy by providing you with an integrated task list.
