email ruling your lifeSometimes we let the tools we use, rule us.  This is the case with email. Email has taken on a life of its own. Do you spend endless hours trying to weed through, and prioritize your emails?  Do you get up in the morning and find that you have over 100 emails in your Inbox?  You’re not alone.  When did we lose control?  How did this happen?

Email is a necessary evil.  We need it to communicate to clients, prospects, vendors, co-workers and friends.  But who’s in charge? — You or your inbox?

Don’t take it anymore! It’s time to take control! 

The following are 3 simple steps to take to ensure you rule your email, not the other way around:

  1. Practice “D-A-P:” If you can’t answer it right away—Delete it, Archive it, or Put it in a folder.
  2. Practice the 3-C’s: Ensure your messages are Concise, Clear and Communicate only what’s needed.
  3. Use Filters: Use filters to block all spam messages. Take advantage of filtering systems that are built into mail applications like Gmail, Apple Mail and Hotmail. This way you can eventually train your email providers to know what’s important to you.
