Are you controlled by email?

Do you control your email or does it control you?

If you're anything like me, you work several hours a day in front of your computer with Outlook or some other email client constantly running and notifying you of new email messages when they arrive.

Then the madness begins - trying to keep up and respond to every email that enters your inbox. Michael Hyatt says it well when he compares it to "a tennis match from hell, some feel obligated to hit every ball back across the net as soon as it lands in their court."

In Saturday's post, Hyatt offered some great thoughts on how to keep from becoming a slave to email and as a result, losing your edge of productivity.
