2. You Can Save Time on E-Mail
The best way to stay focused on your most important tasks is to learn to set other (less essential things) aside. If you are constantly at the desk working on your computer, it is almost impossible to ignore all those messages that you receive to your e-mail box. The problem is that after reading an e-mail message you’ll need another 20 minutes to get back to what you were doing. Multitasking is a stressful practice that leads to memory loss. There is a better option: schedule some time – for example, 15 minutes three times a day – to check out your e-mail box. Remember to turn off alerts, too!
