So I tried Michael Hyatt's email advice to "do, defer, delegate, delete, and file" my emails today. The goal is to have zero emails at the end of the work day. What I found was that taking care of email generates more email. I love the advice but how do I get it under control first? It's becoming a major pain to this youth worker who would like to spend more time with students. (I know, novel idea isn't it?). I also have two email accounts so I guess I would need to start by forwarding all email from my work account to my personal account? I get email cross-over in both accounts. Anyone else frustrated?
