Best-selling author, time management expert, work life balance specialist and professional speaker Susan Sly shares how to organize your inbox once and for all.

Scottsdale, AZ — November 28, 2016 — Best-selling author, work life balance speaker and expert, and entrepreneur Susan Sly recently published a new article, “Organize It! Organize Your Life When You Organize Your Inbox – 5 Tips to Taming the Email Giant.”

As Susan says, “Email has become an integral part of our professional and personal lives. On the other hand, if we don’t organize our inbox and manage email properly, it can wreck havoc on our productivity on the best of days. Take a day – or especially, a week – off and it can seem as if you’ll never get out from underneath its weight.”

Furthermore, Susan then goes on to explain how one fourth of every worker’s day is taken up by email. This information comes from a study by the McKinsey Global Institute.

From there, Susan shares how organizing your inbox is vital to organizing your business in general.

Next, Susa gives five steps to getting a handle on email “madness”. These include things like checking your email in intervals throughout the day, instead of all through the day and dealing it with it when you touch it.

Sly states, “If you don’t choose what to do with a message immediately when you first see it, it takes up double (or more) of your time and hangs over your head until you’ve taken care of it. Both scenarios hinder your productivity.”

She also goes so far as to say if you can’t get a handle on organizing your inbox, a “purge” may be in order. This essentially means scrapping it all and starting over.
