Conquer Your Email
Overload -- Superb tips
and tricks for busy
My predecessor in my
ran a system of elegant
simplicity. Any email
over a working day old
was ruthlessly eliminated,
a method which left his
head clear, at least until
the moment when he began rustling futilely for some long-deleted
additional fact or key phone number while imperfectly concealing
his technophobic frustration from the rest of us.
By comparison, two busy weeks and I can have my inbox up
to 10,000 messages, no sweat. And that's after mastering quite a
number of tips and tricks and regular bulk erasures of some of the
most inconsequential of the ministerial handouts. Needless to say,
the frustrations of both systems are pretty identical.
The arrival on my desk of Debbie Mayo-Smith's latest go-to
book for busy people was serendipidous.
And if it has taken a while to come to grips with, it's partly
because Conquer Your Email Overload -- Superb tips and tricks
for busy people relates to the mainly PC Microsoft Outlook soft-
ware – a programme I only used (briefy) when I set myself up,
inadvertently, with a Blackberry which turned out to be signif-
cantly Mac unfriendly.
In real life, I reverted to the reviled Mac Mail, but much of
what the author has to offer in this keep-it-to-hand book is well
worth the fraction of extra study in terms of taming one's daily
email time investment across any platform.
Mastering fling by taking charge of the inbox with its
inbuilt folder system alone would be worth the purchase
price. This trick was eventually taught me by a colleague
with a background in bigger companies and is so simple it
is a 'dah' once you have found it.
Even the author admits – felding one of her many, many
tips and tricks-- that it was a long time before she found one
of the hiding-in-plain-sight buttons that often lurk un-used.
If there is a single best recommendation from this book, it
is to explore the inner reaches to tease out the extraordinary
functionality of even the most basic of email systems.
Unsurprisingly given the author's track record, this
is also a tutorial in time management and business prac-
tices: using contacts and calendars better, improving your
screen view, inbox shortcuts and retrieving lost emails lead
through to systems for improving email marketing, prior-
itising emails and adding personality.
This book will be useful for high fiers, and enlighten-
ment itself for those who consider email a blunt-instrument
tool of life, but Debbie Mayo-Smith has found in her
research that some of the most ineffcient users of email are
"We all assume that youth comes hand in hand with an
ease in technology usage," she says. "However, young
people are early adopters of webmail so once they enter
the workplace they fail to know how to use this kind of
software. And due to the assumption that people know how
to use such software, workplaces don't provide any staff
An Aucklander with a double honours degree in econom-
ics and geography, the author has worked as a market
analyst on Wall Street and is one of the most sought-after
motivational speakers and authors here and in Australia.
There is enough of a grab-bag of computer literacy in
this book to make it a useful addition to any workplace.
