In search of information, signing up for news feeds, follows and other forms of social media to nourish our quest for new directions and opinions, may create chaos in our inbox.
Titles and subject matter hit the inbox as quickly as you provide your email address, and click on the sign me up button.
Are these information links helpful, or just a step to frustration?
This morning, there were 27 new emails in my inbox. Not many in the broad scheme of things, but enough to have me un-subscribe to several.
My criteria for unsubscribe? If I haven't read the particular information from the provider, in the past two weeks, chances are, I have found their information to be repetitive and non-productive to my needs. Therefore, a prime candidate to unsubscribe.
Cleaning out subscriptions takes but a few seconds. There will always be an Unsubscribe link somewhere on the incoming email. You might need a magnifying glass to find it, but it is there. Look in the wee fine print at the bottom.
With the task complete, your influx of emails will diminish, for now. We are creatures of habit, therefore, it is a given, that signing up for more information will happen, and so will taking the time to unsubscribe to the mail we no longer read.
