Eric Schmidt’s “9 Rules of Email”

Eric Schmidt, software developer and business powerhouse, created 9 rules for email. Here are his top 5 – See if any of these make you more efficient with your inbox:

  1. Respond quickly.
  2. When writing an email, every word matters, and useless prose doesn’t. Be crisp in your delivery.
  3. Clean out your inbox constantly.
  4. Handle email in LIFO (last in, first out) order.
  5. Ask yourself, “What should I have forwarded, but didn’t?”

… Maybe you could find the rest out for yourself!
