We now live in a world where having no email in our inbox is no longer a possibility. Understanding that this reality is now the norm, Jocelyn K. Glei of the 99% percent asks: should you respond to every email? The answer is that you probably would not be able to even if you wanted to. The solution? Use the phone.
"Emails are like rabbits, they reproduce at an exorbitant rate. The more you send, the more you get. So many people complain about all the emails they get, my question is, how many emails do you send?
Sending one email to 5 people could produce 5 emails back. Overwhelmed by all the emails I would get, I decided to stop sending as many. Now, when I have something to ask or tell someone, I pick up the phone and call them. Not only has it significantly reduced the number of emails I get, but it actually saves me time also. A five minute call replaces the time it takes to read and reply to the original email and read and reply to their reply... or replies. And I no longer spend 20+ minutes crafting the perfect email - no need to.
