Follow the SIMPLE Four D's or Email Sanity.......
Delete it – Pretty Simple (but sometimes its ok to just push delete)
Do it – Ask yourself, what action do you need to take, and can it be done in 2 minutes…….if so, then do it!
Delegate it – If you cannot delete or do it in 2 minutes, can you forward to someone in your team to handle it……if so, delegate it.
Defer it – If you can’t do the above, and this is something ONLY YOU can deal with, but need the time (more than 2 minutes) to complete the task properly, then defer it to your calendar for action at the right time.
