As companies grow, so do their inboxes. Those who aren’t equipped to cope with the rising tide of email can quickly find their productivity swamped.
It’s no secret that email has become a giant problem for businesses. The average employee spends 13 hours a week responding to email. It consumes 28 percent of our workday—more than any other task. What’s worse, more than half of the emails we sift through each day are simply a waste of our time.
“I’ve been fighting a losing battle against my inbox for 4 or 5 years…I was having serious problems with losing urgent emails. I was just lost in all the clutter.”
Emily spends her days encouraging space enthusiasts to explore the final frontier. But somehow she kept getting lost in the outer limits of her inbox.
As the senior editor and planetary evangelist for the Planetary Society—a nonprofit organization dedicated to space research and exploration—Emily blogs about everything from drilling on Mars to the moons that orbit Pluto. She also writes about space science for Sky & Telescope Magazine. From the latest planetary news to emails from her nonprofit’s membership base, she’s got a lot to keep track of.
Staring into the vastness of space? Fascinating. Staring into her inbox? Terrifying.
