For most of us, email is our bipolar friend. Sometimes we love it and other times it’s our worst enemy.
It’s there for us when we’re bored. It’s there when we’re trying to avoid work that makes us uncomfortable. It provides a delightful kind of anticipation every time we open it. Maybe there’s something new and important there. Maybe something exciting and wonderful.
But other times it creates a whole lot of overwhelm and frustration.
It distracts us. It keeps us from taking meaningful action on things that really matter.
