I blog quite often on the email over load I am under
But this time here are some interesting statistics to put it in perspective.
In February 2007 I set up a gmail account and I forward a single copy of all incoming email to that account, gmail filters the spam so whats left in my inbox is all good mail.
So since 17 Feb 2007 I have received 159976 emails (recorded by gmail) ! (Thats exact as of now. the rest of these figures are slightly less as its not yet feb 2009)
Thats an average of:
And I aim to reply to each and every one of these personally!!! Gulp
Lets say I reply to 222 emails a day and each takes me 2 mins to research and type a reply to – thats 444mins = 7.4 hours……
so after replying ot my emails everyday I have 0.1 hours to do other things – like go to the bathroom, eat and drink coffee – no wonder I struggle!
