Have you ever noticed how much time you waste on checking your email? It is distracting you too much from your daily job and giving you an idea that you need to check it every moment you can. For some reason we have the idea that we need to response directly whenever we get an email, also we send emails way to quickly and communicating wrong….. but that is for an other day!

We spend an average of 4.1 hours checking our work email each day. That’s 20.5 hours each week, more than 1,000 hours each year, more than 47,000 hours over a career. TOOOO MUCH!! 

From today on you are only going to check twice a day your email! This makes you more efficient and the rest of the time you will focus 100% on your tasks. Put off all notifications so that you know for sure you will not be distracted outside your email time. 

Let‘s say you work from 09am to 6pm, you will plan it in like this:

In the morning from 10:00 to 11:00 and 16:30 to 17:30.

Like this you will have all the emails answered from the day before in the morning and in the afternoon all emails from today are answered. 

Do it and spend your time on more important things!
