As the members who listen to Shawn Today know full well, I’ve been on a war against email the past several weeks. Not a war against email in and of itself, but a war against my poor habits for how I deal with email.
I’ve recently begun a new tactic of only checking email twice a day for 22 minutes at a time. Instead of making a goal for getting my inbox down to zero, I’ve set a goal of only allotting so much time and energy to email. If it can’t make it into my 44 minutes, then it will just have to wait.
