by | Aug 17, 2021 | General Productivity, Podcast

A few of my favorite email habits.

On this episode, we chat about how to more deliberately deal with email, to both think about it less, and make it a less stressful element of your day. Topics covered include:

  • How much we should think about email in the first place
  • How to conduct “email sprints”
  • The two types of work that we all do
  • How to better organize your email messages
  • Creating different “email environments”
  • The “Five-Sentence Rule” for answering email
  • The intention-interpretation gap with communication
  • How to take an email vacation
  • How to shrink time on email through disconnected hours and pre-defined boundaries
  • Creating the illusion of responsiveness
