I ended Friday with an empty email inbox!
I use my inbox as my to-do list. The only messages that I leave in my inbox are action items that I need to complete before I file the email in a proposal folder, or some other folder related to one of my responsibilities. So it doesn't happen often, but I did manage to send everything off to the "other side of the net" so to speak.
I do get a feeling of satisfaction from this, more so than completing a proposal submission, which is also satisfying (although from experience I know that feeling can be fleeting, since post-submission requirements are not uncommon).
Of course, almost as soon as I started writing this, the inbox started to fill up again, but that's OK, I think of that as job security.
