If you find yourself in email hell on a regular
basis, you aren't alone.
Email sucks away the life of many an employee. On average, you're receiving about eighty emails a day, sending close to forty and it's sucking away about 28% of your work time. (read more here). You already know that email doesn't improve your communication efficiency but did you know that research shows email is only 7 percent effective as talking.
So do you keep using it when it doesn't make sense?
Let me make this super simple… if you want to get yourself out of email hell pick up the phone.
Yes, that means you'll have to use your actual voice, words, and thoughts with another human. You might have to navigate confusion, emotion, or even conflict.
You are perfectly capable of doing that. And, the likelihood that won't create further confusion, emotion, or conflict will go down dramatically. Your efficiency and productivity will increase, and if you do this enough,...you might even get better at talking.
