Email etiquette

Multiple studies of our email addiction agree – we’re spending far too much time just managing our inboxes, and not enough getting on with our “real work”.
For some of us that’s hundreds of incoming messages a day, and as much as 2 or 3 hours every working day spent just dealing with them.

All this is a massive drain on our attention, focus and energy, and a major barrier to being productive.
As well handling our own bulging inboxes, how we each write the emails we send out is a major factor in the effectiveness of team communication and productivity.
Making sure we attend to a few basic points of email etiquette is a good place to start.
