Podcast: The Email Paradox: Inefficient Efficiency

Email is one of the most efficient forms of communication ever created. 

Email is almost universally viewed as a threat to efficiency, on and off the job. 

How can both of these statements be true? By being the most paradoxical paradox we’ve tackled yet, that’s how!

In the first part of this two-part episode, we discuss the challenges associated with email overload and the annoying truth that becoming more efficient at something can simply increase the amount of that thing we’re expected to squeeze into our days, if we’re not careful. In Part 2, we dive into the troubling implications of email abundance for productivity, mental health and overall well-being.
