Ep 088: Our relationship with email

Welcome to episode 88 (a pleasingly round number), where Pilar and Richard take a look at email and how it’s so easy to mis-use.

There are heaps of traps we can fall into when it comes to email and the resulting chaos in our in-boxes can be stressful and take us away from our real priorities. Our core message is to examine your automatic behaviour when it comes to email and explore other ways you can respond to that ‘ping’.
