Are you swamped by emails? Wonderful as this means of communication is, it can become a burden to wade through stacks of them. Here are a few tips to help you thrive and survive in the cyber world:
Unsubscribe to those newsletters you don’t read.
Don’t even open junk-mail items – make a habit of simply deleting them.
Handle a piece of email only once: read it, treat it and trash it; don’t leave it for another time.
If you are the target (victim) of recycled jokes and other emails sent to you by friends and relatives with long mailing lists, ask them kindly to remove your name from their lists – tell them to send those items they feel would be of particular interest to you in a private email.
If you’re inundated with emails, try standing while attending to them; it prevents you from being too leisurely about the task.
