Watching people at work can tell you all kinds of things.
One of the activities that I see on a regular basis is people gazing at their e-mails. Even worse is when the e-mails interrupt meaningful work. You can see the frustration in people's faces when they realise that the e-mail isn't really that useful and then they have to go back to what they were doing before.
Checking your e-mails less frequently could help to raise your personal productivity.
What would happen if you didn't get to an e-mail straight away?
Could you live with that result?
Experiment to find the right frequency for you and for the business so that service levels are maintained and productivity optimised.
