The Challenge Of Email

Is email evil? No not necessarily, but it is certainly a distraction. And it can become a distraction to the most important and valuable aspects of your ministry, especially if you don't have a strategy. Read this excerpt from an article called, Managing Distraction: How and Why to Ignore Your Inbox:
"Today’s relentless email flood could steer you away from high-value work and even out of work entirely if you don’t learn defensive strategies. That sounds obvious until you hear that a British study found that half of all information workers respond to an e-mail within 60 minutes of receipt. That’s no strategy at all, unless you consider crossing items off your colleagues’ To Do lists to be your highest priority. Taking that approach is so literally mind-numbing that the study further concluded that overdoing email can be as detrimental to your IQ as smoking weed."
