OK, nobody is going to know what’s going on if you yell, “YES” out loud and jump up in agreement. Are you addicted to checking your email just like so many other people?  It is truly an epidemic among people who are building information marketing businesses, and for good reason.  This is not supposed to feel like a slap on the hand, but hopefully it’s a useful heads-up. It’s one I can use from time to time myself.

Linda Formichelli has an evergreen post on her blog, The Renegade Writer, and it deals with email addiction, offering the following solution that worked for her, “You can check and answer e-mail in three blocks per day: First thing in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in the evening.”  Are you groaning right about now?  Are you noticing that you are groaning? If so, you are definitely NOT alone.

Are You Addicted To Checking Your Email?

I especially like her probing question that follows, “….try to figure out WHY you check e-mail compulsively, then proactively come up with a list of other, more productive things you’ll do to meet that deeper need. Are you looking for variety and excitement? Do you hunger to feel important and accepted?”

I have told myself that my clients need and deserve my immediate response, but learned that was simply not the case. Yes, there are times when an immediate response is required. But not often.

Weaning yourself off the habit of checking email every few minutes (yes, I’ve been there) is a surprising experiment, and I urge you to try it. I seriously doubt that you will ever get an email that reads, “Since you failed to reply within 7 minutes, this opportunity is no longer available to you.” Maybe that’s true for an eBay or other online auction, but that’s about it.
