Do you wish you could get more e-mails every day? I didn’t think so! Today I would like to share with you a simple strategy on how you can get back control.
I remember a couple of years ago I was about to deliver a keynote presentation when the CEO of the company asked if it would be OK if he could quickly make an announcement. Well it didn’t turn out to be announcement, it was more like a full on rant! He walked onto the stage looking a little disheveled and in his hand he had a whole pile of paper, no actually it looked like a ream of paper. He went on to explain that this was all the e-mail correspondence he had received with regards to one particular project that he wasn’t even involved in! It also turned out that this was a minor project! What had been happening is everybody had cc’d every single person they could think of who was even remotely involved in the project on any correspondence!
