Image by orangeacid via FlickrMy email is out of control at work and at home. I have seen @ResourcefulMom tweet about a one-touch email policy. She even posted about it on her site.
Basically, when you get an email, you just touch it once. If it's an email you feel is worth replying to, do so right away. I don't know about you, but I tend to open my emails as they come in and then leave them, hoping to come back to them later. If you are like me, the likelihood that you come back to that email in a timely manner are very slim.
Starting today, I have decided to adopt this one touch rule. I am not doing so well to be honest. I will keep trying though.
Do you feel overwhelmed by email? Do you think that this might work for you? If you try it out, let me know what you think.
