Email Underwhelm

We all hear about being overwhelmed with email, but nobody really comes up with a solution.
Here's a solution!

You are looking at the contacts list in my choice of email client (Mozilla Thunderbird, since you ask).
Short, isn't it?

You don't write emails to more than 30 people.
You THINK you do, but you don't.
You REPLY to more than 30 people a day, more than a hundred people a week, but you issue unsolicited emails to less than 30 people each week.
I promise.
So trim your contact list down to 30 names.
You'll thank me every time you issue an unsolicited email and don't have to spend 30 seconds scrolling through your contacts list, hunting, wondering, …..
