When Your Head is About to Explode…
My Solutions End Inbox Insanity™
Managing the avalanche of daily emails is the #1 complaint I hear. But email is here to stay, so when you’re working solo, you need a strategy to deal with it.
Email is admittedly a very efficient and immediate means of communication. When a client needs something, or a colleague has information to share, they send an email. And since we don’t know what’s in an email until we open it, we open it. Then we feel compelled to answer right away if only to make room for the new emails we know are coming. Besides that, online marketers send us all kinds of newsletters and free training, much of which we’re actually interested in, so it’s hard to ignore them or make ourselves unsubscribe. We don’t want to miss something important or useful.
As a result, email has become an addiction. It can take hours to wade through our inbox each day, but there doesn’t seem to be any choice. Email seduces us through the promise of something new. It disrupts our plans, interrupts our work, yet we can’t ignore it. It’s the universal annoyance everyone loves to hate. In truth, however, email is also a way to escape something that’s tiresome or difficult that we should be doing. But since there’s no one to do those tiresome and difficult tasks except us, we simply can’t let email take over our whole day!
