Write a draft
I've tried everything to be able to stay on top of my emails. The thing is often I am a bit too busy to respond to them as soon as they come. So I would often star them on the assumption that I would come back to them later, but this doesn't work for messages from Instagram or Facebook￼￼, And to be honest, it only works part of the time for Gmail.￼
One solution that I've been working on recently, is to start writing a draft response. Even just a short few words is enough. If you're like me you hate having notifications remaining. This is especially true for draft emails, it is probably the one category that I have always kept empty. So, I use the draft function as a reminder to get back to the people I need to.
But I think this is not limited to only email. When you were given for example a homework task or something that requires a bit of creativity, you can start by quickly riding down the ideas that pop to your mind.￼ That way when you come back to them, you have something to work on or to build on.￼ for that reason I think writing drafts is a great idea.￼
