Email Overload

I don't have to quote official stats for you to get that email is a huge time suck on a day-to-day basis. You live it. Every. Day. And yet every day, you hope it will somehow get better.   But do you know what? I've been using email for over 15 years and I know one thing for certain - email never gets better; it only gets more.

The fact is, people get so stressed out by email - they do crazy things! Have you heard of email bankruptcy? That's where you delete everything in your inbox in the hopes anyone that really needed a response from you will contact you again.

Another popular recommendation I see - only check email a few times a day. You may think this is a great way to "control" email, but it is not. 

Neither is a true solution as the unread messages in your inbox will soon number in the thousands again and the first opportunity you miss because you didn't check your email for hours will have you checking your inbox like an addict again (or on the flip side, hopefully you won't get fired because everyone else has been managing a crisis for hours!)

So what is the answer?

Something I learned a long time ago. You need to put in place a process to manage email. Or it will overwhelm you.
