One year ago, I invested about two minutes into learning keyboard shortcuts for Gmail.

Since then, it’s saved me about one second per email action (ex. deleting, reply, composing, etc), which equals roughly 15 minutes per day.

That means in the past year, I’ve spent 60 fewer hours in Gmail than normal.
