This little Gmail feature has increased my productivity incredibly over the past week. I’ve spent the past week trying to check email only a couple of times a day and this little feature is perfect. When you archive a message, instead of going to the inbox, it simply goes over to the next message.
Remember: your inbox is NOT your to-do list. You should have a separate to-do list, so you aren’t interrupted by incoming messages that can suck hours out of your day. I recommend Things for Mac.
