IT’S ALIVE (and taking away our productivity and success)!
How Email became Frankenstein’s Monster.
For the majority of us who work remotely, a world without email is unthinkable. Its innovative technology has allowed people in every corner of the globe to connect and share information in ways no one could imagine, and has dramatically changed the way businesses, teams, and individuals interact forever.
Considering it’s used more than any other single communication tool (other than our own voices), it must be incredibly popular, right?
People hate it.
If you do a Google search, you’ll find articles with titles like The Curse of Email, and Is Email Dead?
Nothing in our current remote workplace culture generates as much complaining and collective misery.
Email isn’t dead, and it certainly doesn’t need to be killed. It does need to be more effectively managed.
The War Between You and Your Inbox
Consider these statistics:
- There are 2.9 billion email accounts on the planet.
- Worldwide, there are an estimated 210 billion email messages (personal and work-related) sent each day.
- Approximately 78% of those messages are considered “spam” or unwelcome marketing.
- The average office email account receives 122 emails a day.
- The average email “inbox” contains 125 messages at any given time.
- The top three complaints of office workers, according to multiple studies are:
- The volume of email received at work
- The lack of productivity due to constant interruptions and demands of email
- The amount of time spent on email outside agreed-upon working hours
- The average white-collar worker spends between one-third to one-half of the day in email- related activities.
- 83% of workers say their job would be “impossible” without email, so it’s not like it’s going away any time soon.
