Is Email killing you, too? | Sentenc.es
Email chews up way too much time. It's getting to be like the old Asian torture "Death by a Thousand Cuts."
I ran across this great solution/technique for reclaiming my Inbox:
E-mail takes too long to respond to, resulting in continuous inbox overflow for those who receive a lot of it.
Treat all email responses like SMS text messages, using a set number of letters per response. Since it’s too hard to count letters, we count sentences instead.
three.sentenc.es is a personal policy that all email responses regardless of recipient or subject will be three sentences or less. It’s that simple.
And it is that simple. Three sentences. Or less.
