When it comes to decluttering your work life, I always like to start with my email inbox. There is nothing more overwhelming than a cluttered inbox where the important is mixed in with all of those junk emails you never read.

It can be your best friend or it can be your worst enemy, it’s all a matter of how you look at it.I’ve often found myself struggling to find the time to get things, both professional and personal, done.
