We have a tendency to check our email several times during the day, and we don’t realize that we are wasting precious time by doing so. Sometimes we even find ourselves intentionally waiting for a reply. Experts say that we need to check our email either twice or thrice a day only, in the morning around 9 am, 12 noon or 3 or 4 pm before we end the day. That way we can maximize all our email correspondence, and if the email is urgent and it can’t wait the sender would usually just call and ask you for a reply. It’s also a good idea to let your colleagues know that you only answer emails at a particular time of the day.
