Email is an Addiction Problem

Most people think email is a productivity problem. But really it’s an addiction problem.

Ask yourself: How often did you open the mail app on your phone today? How many times did you check your email at work? How much value did checking your email that often bring you? Probably very little.

You check for new messages because it feels good to feel needed and important. You hoard old messages because of over-exaggerated worries that you might need the data days, weeks, or years from now. These bad email habits take time away from you and the life that you want to live.

The art of Inbox Zero isn’t about keeping 0 emails in your account. It’s about creating more time in your life for the things that matter. Hint: reading email isn’t one of them!

Today’s featured coach, Marshall Hughes, became Chief Operating Officer of a multi-million dollar company because of habits including Inbox Zero. Because Inbox Zero was such a big part of his own growth, Marshall insists on teaching it to every employee. Now you can get the same training.

Not spending my life with my head in email meant I always focused on what needed doing. Since teaching Inbox Zero to my employees, I’ve noticed that their attitude and treatment of email is different now and it’s not the primary method of communication. I don’t expect my staff to respond to emails outside work hours and they in turn don’t expect their contacts to either. They’re happier and more effective. You can be, too.”
