Time Blocking Email: Increase Efficiency, Save Lives
I’ve never been more psyched to get an autoresponder. Notice that not only is this attorney blocking off his or her schedule for emails, but is doing so at strategic times: right before lunch and the final bell.
This allows a head of steam to be built up in the morning, a la the “don’t check your email in the morning” philosophy.
And I would bet money that this attorney is not going to get into a car wreck responding to his or her mobile device while driving.
Thank you for your email. In an effort increase efficiency and effectiveness, I am now checking my email two times per day, at 11 am and 4 pm. If your situation is urgent, and cannot wait until 11 or 4, please call my office at xxx-xxx-xxxx and we will attempt to assist you. Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to assisting you.
