What’s the next action covers 6 types of email and how to deal with it.

  • Email you’ve read and there’s no action associated with it and you don’t need to keep it for reference. So delete it!
  • Email you’ve read and there’s no action associated with it right now but perhaps on a later date. So incubate it or file it!
  • Email you’ve read and decided there is an action but you are not sure what the action is. So incubate it or defer it!
  • Email you’ve read and decided there is an action and you know what the action is but you haven’t come around to doing it. So put it on a Next Action list in the appropriate context!
  • Email you’ve read and decided there is an action and you actually did the action. But now you are waiting on some sort of reply from someone or they need to track the outcome of that action. So put it on a “Waiting For” list!
  • Email you haven’t read yet. Those are the only emails that should be in your Inbox!
