Daily reasons to quit your job and go your own way - Because you get too many emails

Daily reasons to quit your job and go your own way

Because you get too many emails

When you start work in the morning, you face a deluge of emails.

Some of them are from customers: you deal with them.

Some of them are from suppliers: you deal with them.

Many are from services you use, informing you of a scheduled outage, or an unscheduled outage, or an update to their terms of use, or a new feature, or the latest tips, or the latest trends, or an upcoming webinar: you delete them.

Even more are from your colleagues, inviting you to meetings, informing you of initiatives, involving you in arguments, copied to dozens of people, each of whom wants to add their two cents: you reply, then, through the day, as others’ replies come in, you reply to the replies.

Finally, your inbox is empty.

You look at the clock: it’s late in the afternoon and time to leave work.

You’ve done nothing all day except deal with emails.
