Is E-mail Becoming Obsolete?

A column in today’s New York Times Business section, titled “Life’s Too Short for So Much E-Mail,” suggests that the deluge of email is so overwhelming that we lose more than we gain by using it. Younger people shun it in favor of texting and tweeting. The writer, Nick Bilton, cites a study reporting that people who do not look at e-mail regularly at work are less stressed out and more productive than others. Clearly, if we’re going to use email, we have to find ways to manage it so it doesn’t control us. What do you think? Does e-mail control your life? Is it possible to pull the plug?

I suggest ways to manage email in my free special report “Making the Most of Your Time & Talents by Decluttering your Digital Domain.” It’s available on my web site’s home page.
