With competing priorities and busy schedules, an entrepreneurs time is invaluable.
Despite this, many of us still fall prey to being reactionary and trying to keep up with our email.
Avoid the trap by creating a to-do list every morning that focuses on strategic deliverables and sticking to it.
Rank your action items based on their contribution to your overall objectives and attack them in order of importance.
Set aside a specific time each day to go through your email; set up filters to categorize and highlight the ones that require immediate attention.
Most importantly: stop letting your inbox dictate your focus.
