Tools for taming the email beast
Further to my little rant yesterday about focusing our attention, I am pleased to share a series of tools to help each of us with taming the email beast:
- Taming the email beast (undeck) describes the email beast and 23 habits to tame it.
- Taming the email beast (commitments) is a one-pager of personal commitments for managing email more effectively.
- Taming the email beast (pocket version) is a pocket version of the essential habits.
Comments and suggestions are welcomed, as always. Please let me know if you’ve implemented any of these practices and whether they have helped or hindered your daily working and learning.
Update: great article from Harvard Business Review on Coping with Email Overload that confirms much of the expertise that went into the above documents.
