Email overload eats into our day and uses time which we could devote to other activities.  At a networking meeting today I asked several senior business executives what they would do with an extra hour a day.  Here are there responses:

  • Paint
  • Have my hair done
  • Go sailing
  • Sleep
  • Cook
  • Do some strategic planning

  1. The inbox, or this PC of mine, will NEVER EVER control me…..!
    I am in control of it……!
    If l choose to take an hour or so…'OUT'…I will do so…..Those people who let the internet control them…..Are very….very….sad indeed…!
    Let's get some 'life'….Back in to our 'lives'.
