When you are suffering from email overload and your inbox is full to overflowing, it is time to remember the 4 Ds.
Once you have read through your email anything that is obviously rubbish or you do not need DELETE immediately!
Anything that can be dealt with within two minutes, DO IT.
If it is too complicated to answer straight away, defer it. Put it into your calendar at a time when you can give it your full attention.
My favourite! Send it on to someone else to deal with on your behalf!
