If you don’t want to be a slave to your emails you need to try this – it will clear your headspace to make better decisions!
When its ‘Online’ you’ll just receive new emails as and when they arrive, when it’s ‘Offline’ it will stop new emails from arriving.
Over the last year or so, I’ve changed my habits to have it as ‘Offline’ as the standard, rather than ‘Online’. It really helps fight distraction and help keep you focused.
Also, remember that you don’t need to be the only one replying to emails – it can be a
great task to start handing over to someone else. I’d challenge yourself to do this if you aren’t doing it already.
