Email was supposed to make our lives easier. In a matter of minutes, you can fire off multiple messages to teammates across the globe; you can schedule and plan meetings and events; you can share files. It saves time, energy and even money.
So why do we hate it despite the ease and convenience it offers? We are drowning in messages, can’t get our work done, and can’t get the response we want from our efforts.
All that plus…
It causes misunderstandings. Abbreviations, misspellings, bad grammar, misuse or confusion of tone, humor or sarcasm…there are innumerous opportunities for emails to be misunderstood or misinterpreted by the recipient.
It’s impersonal. Rapid-fire e-mails lack the richness and quality of face-to-face communication. There are no facial expressions, body language or vocal cues and they can often fall flat, leaving the recipient to feel overlooked or unimportant.
It’s time consuming. Because it’s so easy, it’s often overused. A study by McKinsey Global Institute and International Data Corp. found that email is the second-most time-consuming activity for workers. With each ping, comes another distraction, resulting in major disruptions to work flow and diminished performance.
It’s time to take control. It’s time to manage your email, instead of letting your email manage you!
