How-to Get Rid of Email Overload in the Workplace
Email overload in the workplace can give you brain freeze similar to a 7-Eleven slurpee. It hits, fast, hard and out of know where.
Email overload in the workplace?
How many emails do you receive in a day? Take a good guess. How many of those emails do you need to respond to? A handful here or there?
Do you often find yourself drowning in a sea of promotional emails, gasping for fresh air?
Next thing you know, you have 21,458 unread emails and not sure how you got there and – it’s hard to come back from that. Most emails that end up in your inbox are non-actionable, task-oriented or for team collaboration. 99% of the time you don’t need to take action. Resulting in a headache and an email overload in your workplace.
We spend so much time attached to our inbox that it can become a distractor. Important emails fall to the wayside because we can no longer keep up.
