Have you ever heard someone say they can’t keep up with their email and that there is too much information coming at them? I hear it and see it all the time — people getting overwhelmed with the amount of email they receive.
Truth is — the amount of email coming in is not the real problem. The real problem is the lack of organizational skills. If people learned to manage their email, the volume of email would not be overwhelming.
It is true that we receive a high volume of email. However, if you take control of your inbox, the volume becomes irrelevant. Applying good processing and organizational skills to your inbox will keep it under control and manageable regardless of how much email is coming in.
