email trumps work

You know that feeling when a phone rings. it just has to be answered. email is like that. An email in your inbox has to be opened. It 'trumps' whatever else you are doing. You have to check ... it just might be the 'killer email'. Most of course could be left. They are not urgent. But somehow, you open it .. and then leave it for later. But the damage has been done. You've been distracted. Your productivity is down. Now multiply that effect by all of your staff. Then, think... set so me rules and disciplines for email (perhaps some 'no email' hours) ... and regain some of that lost productivity.
