Time-management problems with e-mail come in large measure from becoming a slave to the system. Establish a strategy for dealing with e-mail. Convincing yourself that you manage e-mail and it doesn’t manage you gives you a strategic edge. Create e-mail moments. Examples:
- Infrequent e-mailers should aim for a consistent “e-hour” each day.
- More frequent e-mailers should aim for an hour at the beginning and middle of the day.
- Busy e-mailers should aim for the first half of each hour.
