Email Management Strategy — Relax!

This month’s email management strategy is:  Relax!

Constantly checking email wastes time.  Block time to answer your email and fight the temptation to check your email every few minutes.  We recommend checking your email no more frequently than once an hour—preferably twice a day (morning and evening).  You will save yourself a lot of time and be far more productive.

Email Management Strategy — Save!

This month’s email management strategy is:  Save!

File email attachments where they belong, and delete the email. File these attachments on your network’s personal or shared directories (i.e., desktop, documents, pictures, etc.)

You took a look at a new car online and now car ads are popping up on your social media pages, in your email and everywhere.  Why?  Because you're being tracked as you surf the Internet.  While you're surfing, technology is collecting data on you and your surfing habits.

Use a filing system that reflects all the facets of your daily activities and interactions (i.e., how you really work).  A straight alphabetical list isn’t as helpful as you may think.
