Eight Experts Weigh In On Their Email Inbox Agony
At Pyrus, we hate email as much as everyone else. It is why we created a platform that structures communication around tasks and processes. To highlight the extent of the problem companies face each day, we compiled a fun list of complaints about the communication medium everyone loves to hate: email.
“I hate email. Hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate email.”
“[M]y inbox… is a disastrously bad todo list.”
“My e-mail inbox is a dejected, endless morass. It’s a desolate wasteland of unanswered messages that continue to appear like a never ending game of Tetris. I can confidently say I hate my inbox and I know I’m not alone. “
“As someone with upwards of 5,000 unread messages at any given time, taking a quick moment to check email is like pushing hot pokers into my eyes.”
“When I tell people I invented email, the first thing they say is, ‘I want to kill you.'”
“Email is having an increasingly pernicious effect. Not only is it having a perceptible effect on productivity, it’s skewing what it is we focus on. The immediate increasingly crowds out the important.”
I have never ever been so behind on email as I am right now.
Stop trying to make reply-all happen, it’s not going to happen.
