Email chews up way too much time.  It's getting to be like the old Asian torture "Death by a Thousand Cuts."

I ran across this great solution/technique for reclaiming my Inbox:

The Problem

E-mail takes too long to respond to, resulting in continuous inbox overflow for those who receive a lot of it.

The Solution

Treat all email responses like SMS text messages, using a set number of letters per response. Since it’s too hard to count letters, we count sentences instead.

three.sentenc.es is a personal policy that all email responses regardless of recipient or subject will be three sentences or less. It’s that simple.

And it is that simple. Three sentences. Or less.
