Step 11: Involve others in conquering your e-ddiction.
One of the best ways to ensure that you stay on track and won’t “fall off the wagon” is to involve others in your plans to change your email habits and practices. Particularly at your workplace, you can gain much support by simply including your coworkers and employees in your plan to turn your email habits and practices around.
Detail your e-plans to your colleagues and employees. Let people know that you’ve turned off automatic send and receive, and that you’ve changed your email viewing habits to five times a day or to 60-to 90-minute intervals—so, should they need you urgently, they should call or stop by instead of emailing.
Success is about involving others!
