It feels like only yesterday that email domination was well in hand– where 7 days could pass without a single thought about email and I was finally free from its grasp.
Oh wait, it was yesterday.
How quickly things change (or not)
Today I opened Gmail by muscle memory. A completely unconscious action– the very thing that kicked off this entire quest to put email in its place.
It was still here. Had it ever left?
Thankfully, I closed the window before Gmail loaded, but I almost didn’t realize what I had done before it was too late. Even after all this time, after feeling zero temptation to open my inbox for 7 days straight, tapping out “Gmail” on the keyboard felt as familiar as ever.
Must remain vigilant.
