If you have an auto-notify on your email system, please turn it off. Interruptions rob us of our productivity. Instead of letting the *ding* of each new email dictate the flow of your day, take control. Set scheduled times to check your emails and then stick with the program by resisting the temptation to take a sneak peek. Try checking emails at the top of the even hours: 8 AM, 10 AM, 12 PM, 2 PM and 4 PM. Setting specific times to handle email not only cuts interruptions but also allows you to know how much time you’re spending on emails. Is email the best use of your time?
