The Case Against Kicking Everyone Out of Your Email Inbox

If you’ve been an entrepreneur for any time at all, you’ve probably had someone advise you to unsubscribe from all but 2 or 3 people’s email list. Generally, that’s not terrible advice. And it’s a quick fix for the information overload entrepreneurs are faced with. But in the end, it’s a gross overreaction. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll tell you that I spent the week between Christmas and the New Year at my sister’s house cleaning out my email Inbox, which contained (I cannot lie) 150,000 emails. I’m a confessed email hoarder. (Recovering that is . . .) And I unsubscribed to A LOT of lists. But I’m still on 20-30, if I had to guess. Here’s why, and how I’ve been dealing with them each day.

Would you offer someone a new phone as a Christmas gift and then say, you can just pay me $400 for it,...

But the holidays have passed and suddenly it’s time to turn all that easily found optimism into reality. We’ve got to sit down and do the work. And it doesn’t take long to realize that doing the work isn’t near as easy, as sexy, as inspiring as making all those glorious plans for a six figure business and a vacation every month lifestyle was. Personally, I found myself with a pit in my stomach, scared, anxious, and doubting through most of New Year’s Day. All this at the mere thought of how much work there was to be done starting the next day. Here’s the Good News If you’re already feeling a little self-doubt about whether you can actually make it all happen, I have good news for you. This doubt and fear is merely your subconscious mind acting the way it’s been programmed to act.
