Purge your email:
It’s obvious that we all find our inbox full of weekend non replied emails. So don’t be in hurry to reply every email on the same time as you read it. Every mail has its own priority to reply. What we commonly do is, we start reading and replying one by one. But it is not the best way to purge email. We should give a look to all our emails. And then we have to start replying them as per their urgency to reply. And the best way is, first see all mails and prioritise your email as per the urgency to reply them I.e.
- Very urgent
- Not urgent
And be clear about their segregation. When you are clear about them, focus yourself to start replying them from very urgent work to non-urgent as per urgency.
This will reduce the complexity and will give you a right way to reply them all without indulging deeply in them and avoid to ruin your Monday. This activity will make your Monday morning more lucid and more resourceful and ultimately make your Monday morning better.
