    4 Tips On Taming Your Email


    (Page 1 of 3 )

    I remember when I was first introduced to email. I was working in a big corporation at the time.I thought it was the neatest thing since sliced bread. I hit a button and the message is sent instantaneously. What could be better? Since then, my feelings towards email are somewhat modified. I still think the technology is great, but I have witnessed too many people getting stressed out by the sheer volume of communications via this medium to know that for some it can sometimes be a curse instead of a blessing. Since none of us is expecting a reduction in the volume of email we will receive, you may find the following tips helpful in helping gain control over your email.

    Keep in mind that this article is designed to help you manage your emails related to work. If you do not have separate email accounts for your work and personal life, my very first suggestion is to get that set up right now. There are numerous options for free email accounts. Do yourself a favor and set one up for your personal activities, like shopping on-line, or subscribing to ezines for your outside interests. That way, you won’t waste precious time weeding through the latest sales offers from Amazon while you are trying to concentrate on work.

    Tip #1 – Handle each message once if at all possible

    Treat the email like a piece of paper. If it is short enough for you to read on the screen, decide what action you need to take to “handle” it. If it was an information only message, then either file it or delete it afterwards. Do not just leave it in your in-box for later because it will take you more time to read it again and figure out what to do.
