How to Kill Email Anxiety, Avoid Distractions, and Get Real Work Done

A modern, no-nonsense guide to getting rid of email anxiety, reclaiming your productivity, and spending more time on the work that matters.

The average person checks their email 11 times per hour, processes 122 messages a day, and spends 28 percent of their total workweek managing their inbox. What was once a powerful and essential tool for doing our daily work has become a near-constant source of frustration, anxiety, and distraction from our work.

  • Break free from email addiction and the “inbox zero” obsession

  • Process your inbox based on what (and who) really matters to you
  • Write messages that get people to pay attention and take action
  • Set boundaries and say “no” to time-wasting distractions
