Tip # 3  is a suggestion that helps you organize email.  Create email sub folders within your email account to sort your emails by category. Label the sub folders with categories that will make it easy for you to distinguish.   For example, use different subjects, projects, client or coworker names  for naming your email sub folders. This makes it easy to choose a category of email to check at a particular time.


To add to my first email tip of not checking email first thing in the morning, have a plan when it comes to checking email.  For most of us checking email once a day isn’t productive.  As I mentioned in my previous post, check email 1.5-2 hours into your day and additionally, choose one to two other times during the day to check and reply to email, and turn off your email notifications.  Set a reminder and stay on schedule.   This will ensure that you’re responding to requests in a timely manner and being productive as well.
