Managing your email inbox can make the difference in managing your time today, this week and forever.
I just read a study that suggested the average person spends 13 hours a week managing and working with email. It is imperative that you make sure you are very efficient with managing email. If I can help you save two hours a week because of my suggestions I will save you more than 100 hours a year.
The problem with email is that someone can send you their problem. A problem for you was feeling you have to respond immediately rather than have a standard practice for managing those types of emails whether they come from your boss, a client, a family member or a friend.
At the end of the day one of the biggest issues related to email is the simple fact that we are curious. I wonder if anyone sent me an email?
