As founder and CEO of my own technology company, my inbox can very easily look like a nightmarish cluster of newsletters and solicitations, forcing me to spend time every day just clicking the “unsubscribe” button.

For years, I tried different filters so I wouldn’t have to manually unsubscribe, wasting time that could otherwise be used productively. After several tries of fine tuning filters, it finally hit me. Why not set a filter with the word, “unsubscribe”? So simple, but genius. Any newsletter or e-mail that contained the word unsubscribe, automatically was filtered out of my inbox. 99.9% of newsletters contain that little link at the bottom we all know so well, “To unsubscribe, please click here.” Important e-mails rarely, if ever, contain that word, so I also eliminated the concern of filtering e-mails that I needed to see. It was life changing to say the least, a problem that I’d be struggling to fix for years was fixed literally overnight. Does your inbox need clearing out? Keep reading to find out exactly how I did it.
