Joe Morgan was recently quoted in a Forbes article, “CEOs: Nine Email Hacks to Better Manage Your Inbox and Priorities”, as a member of the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC).
Emailing is the primary way in which I communicate with my clients and partners. In order to remain organized, I have a folder for each of the entities that I work with where I catalog all of the emails pertaining to that organization. In order to address those emails that haven’t been answered yet, I leave them as unread and prioritize unread emails at the top of my inbox. Once I respond to an email, that email is tagged with that entity’s folder and then archived for possible future reference. I also try to keep in mind when an email comes in that if it will take less than two minutes to do, I will go ahead and respond or complete the short task.
