Increasing productivity by treating email like a scheduled activity..

1 min read

I was reading this article on Medium & thinking about how we minimise distraction & maintain productivity. Notification syndrome is a distraction problem.

i am thinking of adding this to my email signature:


Thank you for getting in touch. In order to increase productivity & avoid destractions whilst working I only look at me emails at the following times:

08:00 - 09:00


16:00 - 17:00

if you send an email outside of these times I will endeavour to reply during the next email checking period.

if your email is urgent then please resend it and mark it as urgent so that I get notified separately of its urgency.


does anyone else use an email signature like this?
