When you arrive at the office each day what are the first things you do? Make a cup of tea? Have a quick chat with your colleague about where you went for dinner last night or maybe talk about what the weather is going to be like today.
Whatever your normal day to day routine is, it’s likely that turning on your computer and reading your emails feature quite highly on your agenda. For those of us that have done a Time Management course we know it’s not what you are supposed to do, but we all do it!
Email seems to dominate our working life. Even sending a message to someone sitting a foot away from your own desk is considered common practise.
Emails are considered to be critical, with billions of us sending, receiving and forwarding messages every day.
So, how would you cope without it? How much do you rely on it to do your job? The answer will differ between us all, but just think about what you used it for yesterday and look at what you wouldn’t have been able to do without it. Multiply this by all of your colleagues and by not having email can have a serious impact on your business.
