How I Spend 5 Minutes Per Day on Email
You, too, can be free
I don’t “do” email anymore.
Instead, twice a day I get a message in Slack that looks like this.
I only need to spend 5 - 10 minutes a day responding to any emails in that message, and I look at my inbox maybe a couple times a week.
I have tried, and failed, many times in the past to reduce, delegate, or neglect my email, but all previous attempts have fallen apart or made little difference.
Until, that is, I hired my amazing VA, Amanda. Together, we've figured out a system where she's able to handle 95% of my email for me, surfacing the truly important things I need to jump in on while resolving or redirecting the rest of it.
