Every day I feel more and more overwhelmed by email.
Once I turn on my computer and look at my inbox, I get sucked into reading and responding to emails.
I have a personal email account and an email account for work.
With my work email, I try to take an organized approach.
I scan each email looking at the sender and subject line, and delete the ones I don't need or want.
With the remaining ones, I archive some, file others for future reading, and write replies to the rest.
I've set up templates for the routine emails,but spend a lot of time drafting personalized responses to the rest.
That takes up a large part of my workday.
When reading my personal email, I take my time.
Yes, I get the usual junk that slips through the spam filters and get newsletters I keep meaning to unsubscribe from,
but people who have my personal email address are mainly friends and family.
When I'm done and I look at the clock,
I'm often surprised at how much time I've spent processing email.
That's time I could have been spending working on my Celine Dion impression.
“Near, far, wherever you are I believe that the heart does go on...”
