Are You Addicted To The “You Have Mail” Ping?

Posted on February 01, 2013 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Limit the amount of time you spend checking email and switch off email alerts. If you are constantly checking your inbox or are responding immediately to email alerts you could be wasting hours every week, not to mention finding it very difficult to concentrate. Limit email checking to 2 to 3 times a day and stick to it. Your email will still be answered within a reasonable time but you will be able to concentrate on more involved projects without constant distractions or interruptions.

Alternatively, let us handle and filter your email for you. We can pick up your email on your behalf, filter out the junk and spam, answer requests for information as you instruct us and only forward you the handful of messages you actually need to deal with yourself. How many hours would that free up each week to work on the more important things?

For more information about our services and how we can help you, don’t waste any more time, contact My Virtual Assistant today.
