Email Management

Managing your emails can be simple if you stick to the following criteria. Keep your emails short with today’s fast lifestyle most people check their emails on their phones or tablets so keep it under six sentences the most.

Don’t make it a priority by checking your email first thing in the morning, give your other important task a priority then check your mail. Do not respond instantly, phone calls are first when it comes to urgent matters so make your emails a second priority if it’s not urgent. If you get less than 30 emails a day,check your emails at various times of the day for example if it’s a 9 to 5 typical day you can check them at 10 am and later on at 3 pm. Respond to emails straight away do not leave them for later on, it is fine if you postponed it for one email but it is way too much if you leave 20 emails for later on the day.

When we use it appropriately, email is an incredibly useful communication tool. But, many of us feel overwhelmed by the amount of mail that we receive and need to respond to.  However, there are ways to manage your email so that you’re more productive. Make sure you stick to the 2 minute rule, if an email involves 2 minutes to read and reply back, then do it right there on the spot.
