When you are walking or driving, use apps like Talkler to read your email to you and be able to reply with voice messages or delete emails. Trying to read email while doing other things often leads to interruptions and rereads. Avoid that by quickly moving messages that require responses to a “tasks folder” and forwarding or deleting the rest. If you are out of time to do this, only try again when you do. Set up filters to automatically sort emails whenever possible. A signature that informs you’re answering from a phone makes typos and late answers more acceptable.
Email is an extremely useful communication tool. But when used inappropriately, email can hinder productivity. More than one-quarter of a worker's day on average is spent answering and reading emails - email is the second-most time-consuming activity for workers, next to "role-specific tasks."
Many use email as a to-do list, which leaves them reacting to life instead of living it according to goals. It’s difficult to write when you’re checking email every five minutes. Don’t check emails during your daily writing time.
