Email: The Quicker You Respond, The More Junior You Are?
If you’ve ever written to me via email you’ll probably know how painfully slow I am in responding (unless you’re waving money) and I’m very aware of this but not too sure how to really improve the situation considering the deluge I face every time I check the Inbox. I noticed an article in the New York Times recently started a discussion in the blogosphere about handling the volume of email – especially if you live digitally. Top blogger Michael Arrington was covered in the article on the oppression of the volume – and when he asked his readers for help, a common response was that he go get a secretary. Something he doesn’t want to do. Other bloggers have followed up on the discussion and suggested several time-management methods.
