I’m horrendous at getting distracted from whatever I’m doing by the envelope icon that appears on my desktop.
I think that I’m going to only have Outlook ‘on’ 3 times a day, say 9-10, 1-2, 4.30-5.30. I guess that I’m scared certain clients won’t get responded to immediately, I know it’s my fault for setting that expectation though.
For others that do something similar, does it help your efficiency?
Do you have an OoO saying anything about it? Or do clients just get used to it / aren’t aware.
Someone said it the other day (Marks? Maslin? sorry ...) about disabling emails on their mobile outside work hours, which I think that I’ll do ask well. Especially as I end up reading but not answering them due to the fact that VirtualCabinet won’t capture the email!
Its a brave new world ... any further advice / experience welcome ...
