3 Ways Changing Your Thinking Will Tame Your Inbox

Every business leader knows checking your email can be a huge time-suck. But a recent study by Adobe describes this problem with some pretty surprising numbers. According to its data, the average white collar worker will spend 4.1 hours checking their work email each day. That’s 20.5 hours each week, more than 1,000 hours each year, more than 47,000 hours over a career! Yikes.

So how do we curb it and get back that precious time? We asked Think Productive Productivity Ninja and Author of How to be REALLY Productive, Grace Marshall, to share her unique tips with us on how to truly tame your unruly inbox for good.
