I agree completely about time spent reading email. I have been creating folders for many of my subscriptions. Right now I want to be able to see what someone elses marketing emails look like. And autoresponder swipe file if you will. But I don't read anywhere near as many as I used to. I think I'll also vote with my "unsubscribe" button. Thanks for article, I think many folks will see the truth in it.

Couldn't agree more about the email comments. Most autoresponders are just peddling their products -- and wasting my time. Many of them say the same thing. Email is fun and informative but it can take away from valuable work time.

Ryan--You're absolutely right on track here. Each of these three points really resonate with me, especially deadlines and e-mail. I accomplish next to nothing if I don't have a deadline attached to it. And, I've cut way back on the number of e-mails I subscribe to. I can easily waste an hour every morning reading e-mails. But I never get that hour back.

Keep up the good work!
