Process email only a few times a day

Posted by Roxanne Chugg

During September we continue to share the habits of highly successful people….. today we give you some insights into emails and some tips on managing them….

Ultra-productive people don’t “check” their e-mail throughout the day. They don’t respond to each vibration or ding to see what has come into their inbox. Instead, like everything else, they schedule time to process their e-mails quickly and efficiently. For some, that’s only once a day; for others, it’s three or four times a day e.g. in the morning, at noon and before they leave work for the day. 

Try creating email boxes for “waiting for a response” and “needs further action” and deal with email straight away if you can.  Action them, file them or delete them.

Find out what works best for you but turn off that email and try checking in a couple of times a day.

Try it and see the difference it makes!!!
