Email Productivity: Work Smarter with Your Inbox

Alexandra Samuel

Overview

Nowadays we're so connected that it's often hard to tell the difference between being a productive and a compulsive email checker. In the blink of an eye, a pleasant evening can turn into a two-hour email spree that just doesn't seem to end. Sometimes, things are really urgent, but it's usually the lack of real email productivity that forces you to stay online.

Alexandra Samuel is a tech writer and a regular Harvard Business Review contributor, as well as appearing in other authoritative journals such as The Wall Street Journal and The Atlantic. In this course, Samuel tackles topics such as proactivity, folder systems, and automatic filters within our emails - things that we usually take for granted but can help to revolutionize our process for being more productive.

Favorite Quote

"Each and every one of those emails in your inbox is a demand. Even if it's a really tiny demand, it's a demand that says read me, look at me, decide what to do with me. The cumulative impact of all those tiny micro decisions is sapping your life force."
