1. What part of the day am I most creative and sharp? When do I do my best work? Morning or afternoon?
2. Do I usually process my email during my prime part of the day?
3. Does God want me to use my best time of day answering email? Or is there some calling more crucial that needs my best effort?
I’ve found it helpful to answer all my mail at the end of each day. I was surprised how much faster I process it when my family is waiting for me. The bell that signals “You’ve go mail” isn’t nearly as important as my arrival home that signals to my family “You’ve got Dad.”
