Why do I need to
achieve Inbox Zero? What’s wrong with a perpetually full Inbox?
Inbox ≠ To-Do List Inboxes
are not designed for task management! Inboxes don’t allow you to sort or prioritize! Inboxes don’t show a comprehensive view of all projects/tasks (ongoing projects, calls, meetings, verbal to-dos, etc.)
