Are you addicted to your in-box? Can you live one day without your cell phone? How often do you check your e-mails from home? Do you find it hard to hide? Can your boss track you even when you are on a vacation? Do you look up and search for everything online?
I think this is the typical profile of most office workers today. The availability of information and the ease of communications crated information overload for many people.
I am on the those people who must check his e-mail every few minutes, must check my cell phone for missed calls if I walked away from the phone for a bit and constantly browse the net for information.
How can you handle this information overload or the urge to go online? I am trying to train myself on setting up limited time each day for e-mail check, I would not check my e-mail each time I am free, but I will only check it at a certain time each day, I would not have my cell phone with my 24hrs and I would go online each time I come across something I don’t know.
These seem to be simple rules to follow, but hard to do actually, I have been trying to such a long time to stick to them.
I write this article from my bed at 11PM, so I better practice what I preach.
