Email is a fantastic tool that helps us communicate quickly and efficiently. However, often we get stuck in a habit of incessantly checking our emails or using email for personal instead of professional use at the office. This can add minutes if not hours onto our work days.
- Eliminate Personal Emails from Your Work Day: Send all personal emails to a separate personal email account that you check either outside of work hours or once during the day. This goes for social networking on sites like Facebook that don’t directly relate to your business.
- Limit Your Professional Email Usage: Instead of checking your email each time a new message appears in your inbox, set aside certain times during the day that you read and respond to emails. You’ll be surprised at how much time you gain!
