People continue to spend an average of six hours on email in a day.
Solve the email problem on your team by:
1) Ensuring everyone doesn't expect immediate responses to emails.
2) Ask everyone on the team to identify the one thing each day to work on that he or she believes will have the biggest impact.
3) Make deep work important by asking everyone to block out time on their calendar for that one big thing.
"Yes, technology is awesome. But when left unchecked, all the increased chatter can come at the expense of focused time for creativity, problem-solving, and learning."
