3 Things My Mum Taught Me About Email - Lesson 1

Intel, the company known for it's computer chip estimated that email overload can cost large companies as much as $1 billion a year in lost employee productivity!

Scary isn't it??

I'm going back to 3 Lessons I learnt from my mum and how they relate to email.
Today is lesson 1

1.    Switch off Your Email Notification Message

Why?  Like Mum said, “if Johnny told you to jump off a cliff, would you do it?  The same applies to email.  I might be accountable to my clients or colleagues, but I am a responsible adult who knows what I need to be doing each day.  By switching off my email notification message (the one that pops up when you are part way through something else and entices you to read it!) I determine when I deal with email and don’t let “Johnny” influence me.
Thanks Mum, will do
