I Need to Get Better At Email

Inbox back up to 45. How many emails am I writing/replying to each day? It seems like a lot, but I'm not tracking explicitly. Hmm.

This is what I wrote on October 1st -

1. My email volume has been going up, and I haven’t adjusted to a new routine for it. Before I’d go into my inbox, clear a third of it when I had free time waiting for something, and then do that twice more in the day, and it’d be empty at the end of the day. Now, I’m going to need to set aside more time for it.

2. I’m answering/replying/writing a lot more emails, so it feels like it should be empty – but then I’m leaving one or two messages there that weren’t there at the end of the day. This is like spending more money than you’ve got coming in – it’s going to catch up with you sooner or later.

3. I had 2-3 days in the last two weeks where I had my day booked end to end and didn’t answer anything except ultra time-sensitive email. But that fills up the inbox pretty quickly if not cleared out.

On Another Place

I don’t know about you, but there once was a time when I used to be scared of my email inbox. The emails would pile up and I wouldn’t know what to do about it, nor where to find all the important messages in amongst the other rot and rubbish.

I’ve managed to tame it now - and here’s a few tips that might help you, too:
