Prioritise to reduce unnecessary emails

Develop an uncanny ability to be selectively ignorant.

Timothy Ferriss

Email traffic has grown exponentially. Today, it’s not uncommon to receive over 100 emails a day. For PAs who look after multiple mailboxes, the volume handled can easily rise significantly. Here we focus on prioritising – specifically:

  • Distinguishing between the emails you really need (information) and the nice-to-have-but-perhaps-unnecessary emails (noise).
  • Processes to prioritise what information and emails you really need.
  • Alternative communication sources for low priority information.
  • Ways to say ‘no, thank you’ to unnecessary emails.

How much of all this email ...
