by Peter Bregman | 11:07 AM May 8, 2012 "Here's my problem with email," Jane*, a lawyer friend of mine told me recently, "I open Outlook expecting to quickly check my email, but then I read an email with a link in it, I follow the link, and then I'm lost on the internet for hours." "My job is to be on email," Jane continued, "How can I avoid getting hooked?" In my recent post Coping With Email Overload , I suggested that it's better to bulk process email at scheduled times during the day than to read each email when it comes in. At first, Jane — like most lawyers and many other people I know — felt like she had to be on email all the time. But after thinking about it, she admitted that no one would notice if she wasn't.

I stayed focused on the screen as I rode to the sixth floor. I was still typing with my thumbs when the elevator doors opened and I walked out without looking up. Then I heard a voice behind me, "Wrong floor." I looked back at the man who was holding the door open for me to get back in; it was the CEO, a big smile on his face.
