Okay, here’s a question. How are all of you out there dealing with the larger influx of email communication that we are getting these days? Is it me, or is picking up the phone more uncommon and in-person meetings too hard to schedule because people are too busy?
I think I am getting upwards of 100 emails a day. I wish that I were joking. My gmail is bursting with emails, and that’s after I unsubscribed to a bunch of junkmail. So, this is really all work-related and personal correspondence.
Who has a good system of filing and responding to all this stuff? I’m drowning. As a freelance worker and a writer, those emails are always flowing in faster than I can deal with ’em. And they’re coming like a river of hot volcano and they’re threatening to burn my house down.
