Handle email and communication to stay productive:
- Be concise in every response to reduce the time spent on communication.
- If a response has the potential to require a discussion, make it a phone call instead.
- Schedule time for emails. Leaving the email open all day creates constant distractions.
- Only spend time on communication when it’s scheduled. Block out small windows throughout the day to respond.
- Hire a full-time or virtual assistant to handle your communications for you.
