First let me set the record straight – I am not being snarly nor a smart aleck. If anything I’m about to say comes across that way then I ask your forgiveness in advance.
I completely understand the angst over email clients – I have plenty of my own. What I don’t quite understand is all of the angst about managing email. I have 200 employees and over 900 parents that I deal with as the head of a large private school. Believe me, when you are dealing with peoples’ children, money, and religion and now add in Covid, masks, social justice issues, and a presidential election, there are lots of emails for me to contend with!
But I just don’t find it difficult to manage emails. I am currently looking at my inbox. I did not clean it out in anticipation of writing this short post. I currently have a grand total of three emails not processed. Overtime I have been rigorous about establishing rules, marking things as junk, and processing to my task manager for needed follow up to emails. The fact that I have enough time late afternoon during a short coffee break to post this is reflective of the fact that I’m not overwhelmed with emails.
I guess I’m just a bit surprised that another article is needed on this subject when it has been dealt with so many times by so many.
What am I missing?
