Four D’s to Manage Email:
Tips from fellow organizer, Pam Holland at this year’s NAPO Conference.
Don’t just get rid of emails.
Make sure subscriptions with no interest stop arriving in your inbox. There are hosts of apps to help you unsubscribe from electronic junk mail. Unroll me is worth a try and SaneBox comes highly recommended.
Find ways to simplify any action steps.
You may need to set up archive folders specific to the areas of your life to speed the process of sorting your electronic mail.
Can someone else address this issue?
Make sure the person to whom you delegate has all the information they need to complete the task.
Make a CONSCIOUS decision to take action later.
Julie Morgenstern teaches it best in Time Management from The Inside Out. Create a reminder for yourself with a deadline by when you want the task completed.
