Less stress sending brilliant emails

A new book from email expert, Dr Monica Seeley, makes this a reality.
Brilliant Email, published by Pearson this week, shows you how to save time and be more productive with email. The result is less stress and up to an extra hour every day which most people would use to have a 'real' lunch or take some exercise.
It's not too grand a claim to say that better email management will not just save time, decrease stress and increase productivity, but it will also enhance the quality and effectiveness of our lives.
Most of us suffer email overload and addiction to our inboxes. Much of it, according to Monica's research for Brilliant Email, is caused by ineffective and inappropriate use of email. This includes the big time stealers like; over use of cc'd email, dealing with unnecessary email or emails which should never have been sent because a conversation or instant message would have been more effective.
Writing the book, she explains, was her way of sharing the expertise and the many short-cuts to more productive email she has developed while working with a broad range of companies and individuals over the years.
Dr Monica Seeley, comments; "The fact that most people, if they could get an extra hour in their working day, would spend it getting out of the office for lunch, taking exercise or a chat - reflects the overload that everyone is feeling. The virtual world of communication is very exciting but we have to balance it with time for face to face relationships. It's not too grand a claim to say that better email management will not just save time, decrease stress and increase productivity, but it will also enhance the quality and effectiveness of our lives."
