One easy way to keep email from eating your day 😬

📥 Today’s tip: Automate your email workflow.

At the end of the day, talking about work over email isn’t the same as producing the work you were hired for. To wrest your working hours from the jaws of your inbox, you must automate your workflow.

In his new book A World Without Email, the productivity mastermind Cal Newport suggests scheduling recurring emails ahead of time and using templates wherever possible. “Make automatic what you can reasonably make automatic,” writes Newport, “and only then worry about what to do with what remains.”
