Time to Change Those Bad Habits About Email

About two years ago, I was in a conversation with a leader who ASSURED me that email was a thing of the past. Young people were no longer using email. New social media forms were making email a dinosaur.

Well, while versions of instant messaging have grown... there has been no decrease in email while that happened. In fact, there are more emails then ever. Which is why leaders need to be wise about how we use email.

There are so many common mistakes we make that not only lead to a decrease in our productivity, but for others as well.

Here is a nice article on Seven Email Habits You Need to Break.

Make January 2015 the month when you build better Email Habits.


QUOTE OF THE DAY about Email
It's just madness. First email. Then instant message. Then MySpace. Then Facebook. Then LinkedIn. Then Twitter. It's not enough anymore to 'Just do it.' Now we have to tell everyone we are doing it, when we are doing it, where we are doing it and why we are doing it.  (Mark McKinnon)
