Email tip 2 Switch off email alerts now!!!!!

Turn off the alerts. The hosts of the Manager Tools podcast Mark and Mike call the outlook pop up toast and as they say if you leave it on you are toast. Every time the email alerts you, you are distracted, even if for a second and this destroys focus on the task at hand. Switch it off, switch it off now. But when will I deal with email? I hear you cry. Simple answer whenever you schedule it in your calendar. 30 mins in the morning and in the afternoon, 1 hour at the end of the day whatever suits you. Just don't deal with email when everyone else wants you........which is when they send it you. Take control of your own time.
