Those who feel overwhelmed by email usually work from the assumption that if someone sends them something, they absolutely must read it and respond. However, effective people tackle email differently.
If you’re like most people, you feel overwhelmed and frustrated by the amount of email you receive. You would rather spend time on high-impact projects instead of digging through your inbox. But as we advance in our careers, and add responsibility to our jobs, the amount of emails (and texts, and calls, and meeting invites) we receive are likely only to increase.
Getting on top of your communications—and staying ahead—requires subtle, yet important shifts in your mindset and strategies.
