Don’t Let Email Hijack Your Productivity
It’s time to get your productivity back on track, and stop letting email dictate your daily actions and suck up your valuable time. Here’s how:

• Check email only at specific times – Try to check your email no more than three times during the work day. Once in the morning, again at midday, and a final time before leaving the office.

• Set realistic expectations – Let your clients and colleagues know not to expect immediate responses via email. If they need you right away, it’s faster – and more efficient – to just pick up the phone.

• Don’t be a slave to your phone – Mobile phones are great, but not when you can’t put yours down. Use mobile email out of necessity and convenience, but don’t constantly let it interrupt your life.

• Turn off inbox alerts – All these do is interrupt your day and your productivity every five minutes. Change your email settings so you’re not tempted to check every email the moment it comes through.

• Eliminate unnecessary emails – Email loves email. Long email chains are exhausting for everyone involved. So keep emails short and only respond when necessary.
