30 Days of Email Domination: False Sense of Security

By Sol in Blog

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?

Everything that happened in the last 30 days– my first full day without email, curbing busywork, the elation I felt when I realized my priorities were changing. Was it all for nothing?

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.
