One of the problem as a Parent and an employee I have is email clutter. Many people think of clutter as in house clutter, but computer email can be a big clutter that can take up so much time and stress. Once during my brother’s marriage, I did not check my office email for 1.5 weeks time, when I got back I had 343 emails waiting in that short time. I was so behind in emails and was stressing out as I was behind work too. Personal emails can be as bad, specially as spammers seem to find my email… Continue reading
