4. Turn off multiple inboxes
One-Touch to Inbox Zero
Tiago Forte

I actually turned on multiple inboxes a few months ago after avoiding it for years- I find batch processing social media updates all at once is easier- there’s a context switch cost with each new email proportional to the context difference between the current and previous email.

I still go through all my emails at once though (i.e. all 4 inboxes), and don’t do it often
