Email. It's a blessing ... and a curse. Many of us spend a significant portion of our day managing work email. Writing it, reading it, flagging it and putting it into folders has become an action item for many that was not even part of the work landscape a few decades ago. And sometimes (shudder) it even follows us home and comes after us with its plaintive little beeping voice late at night or on the weekends.
This week we continue our work-themed month with a poll about email. Tell us what percentage of your work day is spent dealing with those electronic messages that won't leave us alone. Do you find it a mostly positive or mostly negative part of your work day? Personally, I would always rather get an email than an actual phone call, because I can deal with it on my own time and terms. How about you?
