This is how the UK’s most productive women manage their inbox worklifebalance Productivity MondayMood

There’s no doubt that inbox management is the bane of most of our lives. Ever walked in to work with a good mood only to be hit by an inbox with 100+Felt the strain of endless follow-up messages demanding your attention be split into a million little pieces? Tried to implement a folder system and ended up more confused than you were before? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

“I’ll let other emails sit for two to three days so people don’t assume it’s an instant messenger tool. One-to-two times a week, I set up an out-of-office saying, ‘I’m experiencing a high volume of emails at the moment. It may take up to 36 hours to respond.’”“I’m usually in surgery or seeing patients face-to-face, so I have to be uncompromising in what emails I do or don’t answer when I am actually at a computer,” says Kali Potiszil, a specialist in oncoplastic breast surgery.

Alice Santana, an advertising production consultant to global commercial brands, says: “I try to keep to 50 or fewer messages in my inbox so I implement a ‘do it, delete it, delegate it or flag it for later’ system. “I’m not a heart surgeon. No one is going to die because I didn’t answer an email that was sent out of working hours.”

Inbox Management: “I delete anything I don’t need, plus any responses that just say ‘yes’, ‘thanks’ or ‘sounds great’ and spend 15 minutes each day filing everything into sub-folders.”
