Email excellence, The Series. How to manage your Inbox effectively

 Email excellence, the series. How to manage your Inbox effectively.

Is your Inbox ruling your day?

Do you feel like your Inbox manages you, instead of you managing your Inbox? Is your Inbox always full? Do you often spend the better part of your day in your Email Inbox? 

If this sounds like you, you should know that you are not alone. It is very easy to get totally overwhelmed by the amount of emails you receive. In fact, most people are. A study by the Radicati Group in February 2015 found that every day 205 billion emails are sent and this number is still growing. They also found that a business email account receives approximately 122 messages every day. Sound familiar? This does not even include the increasing number of Instant Messages we send. That’s why you have lost control. That’s why you are overloaded.
