The Menace of Email

Email has become a victim of its own success. Whilst it is undeniable that we are better connected wherever we are on the globe and to whomever we want to be – and this allows us to achieve an awful lot that would be unimaginable even 10-15 years ago – the fact that we are so available is also its undoing.

How often do you find yourself at your desk drawn into reading unimportant newsletters, emails which have been copied to you without good cause (usually in an effort by the sender to protect themselves – how often have you heard ‘but you were copied on the email…’), or plain annoying email that you just do not need to read regularly.

Recent research shows that the average white collar worker sends or receives 108 emails per day and about 28% of their time at their desk is spent dealing with email (13 hours per week!). And when you are out of the office there is no escape – how much time do you spend sifting through your inbox on your smartphone?

There is no doubt that email is moving from being a productivity tool to a costly overhead – both in business and for our personal time. So what can be done about it?
