I get lots more emails than I can answer and I hate not answering email (how rude!). So here’s what I do…
- I answer emails twice a day – one Pomodoro in the morning and one in the afternoon
- I prioritise the most urgent first and leave the ones I don’t get to
- I accept that some will go unanswered and that might be a problem
- Then I delete anything I haven’t got to 10 days after I’ve received it
- I trust that people will tell me if their thing needs to go up the priority list.
