“DO’s and DON’T’s” of Emails

Categories: Uncategorized

Emails. We can’t ignore them. Or can we?email

These essential items affect our business in more ways than you might imagine. Firstly, they can bring good news in the form of a new Client or business. Secondly, they are an everyday part of our lives. Communication is largely accomplished at the speed of light.

The downside is that they can take a massive portion of your day.  If you get an alert and stop every time one arrives, you lose about 30% of your efficiency. By the time you get back to what you were doing, the continuity is lost.                         

A better way is to allocate some time first thing in the morning. Then after lunch. Then just before you go home.

Can’t do it? Rubbish! If you were in a Training Seminar or Meeting, you would not have your phone on. You’d have no idea an email had arrived. You can be uncontactable for 3 hours and it will not mean the world will collapse without you.

Whatever you do, don’t do it in the car on the way home unless you have a chauffeur. You’re no good to anyone if you’re dead.
