According to a report done by the Radicati Group on email statistics, we receive an average of 75 emails daily, 13 of those being junk email. We send an average of 35 emails each day, which gives us a whopping average of four hours on email duties daily!
If you are a service-based professional, this means that half of your day is spent in your email inbox and only four hours are spent doing your genius work (assuming you work 8 hours). If you are looking to grow your business and make more money, the math doesn’t add up, does it?
I’m not going to bore you with the reasons why getting too much email can dramatically reduce your productivity because I assume you already know that.

What could you do with an extra hour today?
