Overcoming the ‘You’ve Got Email’ Syndrome


overcome-email-overwhelm

 

Ask yourself in all honesty, if any of the following apply to you.

  • I stay logged onto my internet email account throughout the day and press my refresh button at least once every half hour
  • I keep my Blackberry on 24/7 and run to it even in the middle of the night when I hear the sound ‘ping’ or even keep it next to my bedside
  • I check my emails before I have my first sip of coffee in the morning or even collect the newspapers from the door
  • Even if I am busy, I must put everything aside to answer the email, even if it is to forward jokes to friends
  • I have my Facebook, LinkedIn or any other social/professional site application installed on my mobile and text on the go
  • I haven’t seen my friends in my city or spoken to them by telephone for over six months but have an idea as to what is going on in their lives thanks to emails, Facebook and other social network sites email alerts.

If you answered yes to more than two of the above, then you might be heading to be the latest casualty of this syndrome. Please do some self management before you need to call in the professionals or join an Email Anonymous Group for a 12 Step Program.

 

Email overwhelm is a know disorder!

 

The ‘You’ve got email’ syndrome or email overwhelm is a known disorder that impacts our lives and is a key area to be addressed in effective time management.

Modern communication has its benefits but when technology overtakes us, it is time to reassess where we are heading. Not only in terms of relationships and support systems, but also to enhance the quality of our life and effective time management. You can learn more about support to get your time under control here.

Complete abstinence is not required. Self-management goes a long way to reclaiming your time and making email reading and website tracking an enjoyable relaxing activity.

I often challenge people who complain about the Blackberry  responses taking away quality time from their family and personal lives to switch off the Blackberry on a Saturday midnight  and resist turning it on till Monday morning.

To date none have been successful completely and terms were renegotiated till Sunday midnight. Despite complaints of anxiety and withdrawal symptoms, they realized that a few hours away from the outside world enabled them to have quality Me and family time helping them to overcome guilt of neglecting the important people and things in their lives at least on a Sunday.

For those working from home, it helps to schedule specific times during the day dedicated solely to email checking and refraining from logging onto the computer before that morning cup of coffee. To make your efforts reap results, schedule the times in your diaries or time planner. Control the impulse rather being controlled.

Use filters to organize incoming emails into different categories. That way, even if you cannot resist the impulse, you can endeavor to read only those emails that land in your important folders.

Make different email accounts for different types of emails; business, personal and subscriptions/newsletters to assist the sorting out process and ensure that you don’t miss the important emails.

Once you action your email, delete it or transfer it to another folder so that your Inbox only shows recent mails.

Regularly delete emails over one year of age. Revisit your email subscriptions and remove those that are not relevant to you at this point in life. Disable email alerts for networking sites or restrict them to a once a week notification.

Reclaim your time and life!

I believe the world would be a better place if high achieving professionals accepted setbacks and challenges to their careers as Wake Up Calls to embark on a Journey where their empowered course correcting actions create a New World Order that encompasses achieving their career aspirations & potential with authentic life balance.

Using a combination of intuition and analytical skills, I help my clients identify their real issues with exercises to still their mind and allow their inner feeling to emerge in a place of confidentiality and trust.

I work with driven, passionate, talented and ambitious professionals who’ve hit a speed breaker in their business or career create their desired breakthrough reclaiming control of their situation with customized strategies and tactics that work.

When my clients first come to me, they are not in a very happy place and need clarity about themselves and their chosen vocation. Their professional problems are playing havoc with other areas of their life. They know they need to take radical steps to change the status quo but they also know that they need support and accountability to get them their desired result.

I really get it, because at one point, I also experienced getting lost in my work rationalizing decisions that were detrimental to the other aspects of my life. I’ve struggled with and won battles of stress management, life balance and career decisions to emerge in a place where I can confidently say that I live my desired life according to my personal Manifesto and have created a business that provides me with a platform for my desired lifestyle and self-expression for myself. I want that for you too!
