5. Streamlining your attachments

Having attachments in a pool of thousands of emails is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Instead, save each attachment yourself to the likes of Dropbox or Google Drive, or you could join everyone else in the 21st century and let SaneAttachments do the work for you. Not only will SaneAttachments automatically save all your attachments to Dropbox (or Box), but will help reduce the size of your inbox too.

6. Get rid of the distractions

Be it a Vine, cat video, meme or an email notification, it doesn’t take too much to distract we simple humans. According to a study conducted by Radicati, the average office employee is expected to receive around 125 emails per day by 2015 – that’s 125 individual distractions. Turn off email notifications on your phone and computer and combine this with #2.

As the old saying goes, time is money, and the more time you spend managing your emails, the less time you have to be productive. The average office worker spends 2.6 hours per day in their inbox. Multiply that by the number of employees your business has or the amount of days you work. It’s scary.
