Let me guess how you start your workday. . . .by opening your inbox and reading email. Unfortunately I’m not psychic, but I do know that this has become our go-to habit at work. We use it so often that many of us think email IS our work, rather than a tool to use IN our work.

In this video, I talk about the confusion between the two and what we should- and should NOT- be using email for.

Check out the video below for my thoughts!

And if you haven’t already done so…go ahead and sign up for The Problem Solvers School newsletters while you’re here! I’d love to give you first-access to more videos like these- not to mention access to freebies like webinars, podcasts, and resources to help you succeed!

After you’ve checked out the video, won’t you head down to the comments section? We want to hear from you! What are your email do’s and don’ts? How do you handle coworkers who do NOT understand email?

You can make a real difference for someone else when you share your story. So don’t be shy about leaving a comment. Every little bit of wisdom helps!

If you’ve got a little time after leaving your comment, check this out! As I was thinking about the history of email, I came across this 2011 Time magazine interview with V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, who holds the first copyright for “EMAIL.” Worth a read to learn about his early days developing this tool we now take for granted!
