Stop Email Overload

Your inbox is probably stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey right now, and nobody blinks an eye at it. Amy Gallo writes for Harvard Business Review about stopping the deluge of emails. While some companies aim to limit or even completely cease emailing, there are proponents who believe email is still vital when people can be so difficult to reach by phone or in person. The underlying problem is lack of clear communication; when people respond to emails right away, they end up receiving much less email in the long run because there is less need for follow-up. Asking only to be copied in emails at specific junctures will also help. But once you do finally clean your inbox, make sure you keep it that way. That vigilance will pay off in the long run.
