Jay Fleischman of Bankruptcy Practice Pro has a great post worthy of Life Hacker about managing email. Very appropriate, considering now that the world is awash in blogs, Twitter tweets, Facebook notifications, and email, electronic communications quickly spiral out of control. Here’s the short version (though it’s worth reading in its entirety):

1. Stop Checking Email: You heard me right, stop checking it. At least, not all the time.

2. Don’t Check Email First Thing In The Morning.

3. Filter, Filter, Filter.

4. Respond When You Read.

5. Keep It Short and Sweet.

6. Have Multiple Accounts.
