Manage your email – expert shares tips

How many messages are in your inbox right now? Are most of them opened but you don’t know what to do with them? Outside In Organizer and Makeovers shares these tips about how to manage your email and in essence…improve your time management.
First, treat your inbox like any potential source of clutter. The process of organizing it is the same: PURGE, SORT, ORGANIZE.
Second, delete any junk mail and unsubscribe from unnecessary sites.
Tip three, create files to store messages that are for future use or reference. Purge these at least once a month.
Tip four, designate action items that are already overdue.
Tip five would be to mark those items that require your action or response within the next week.
The next tip is the most important one…schedule 1 time in the morning and 1 time later in the day to read, organize, and respond to your email. Commit to this rather than checking your email throughout the day, you will increase your productivity.
