Inbox Zero 2018

I’ve been thinking alot about my gmail account. I’ve given Google permission to search all of my data in order to market to me.
This is a huge invasion of privacy I’ve blindly agreed to. To remedy this I’ve deleted all emails from my gmail account. It took approximately a week, but there were many emails with my personal information! Driver’s license, W2’s all kinds of things very easy to steal. Now I have a clean slate and a whole new philosophy on email. Email is for short communications, not storage. Storage will be searched and marketed to. Also, if(when) there is a data hack, I’ll be clean vs. the millions of people who store their personal information on email. What a great exercise to do every year to find things you might need to follow up on.
