12-Step Program for Email Addicts...

Is email taking over your life ? If you answer yes to one or more of the following, then maybe it is:

Do you feel a compulsive need to check your email whenever you're near a computer ?

Do you plan your vacation around locations that can provide internet connections ?

Do you sit and wait for email to arrive and if none arrives, send one to yourself ?

For those who answered yes, don't despair. Help is at hand.

Marsha Egan, an executive coach from Pennsylvania, has designed a ‘12-step program for email addicts’.

Step 1, of course, is recognizing that you have a problem. Other steps include establishing a time table for checking emails and keeping the inbox empty.

Egan is also planning on holding ‘e-mailers anonymous’ monthly teleconferences....

I'm an email addict ... my level of anxiety correlates directly to the amount of unopened or unresolved email sitting in my inbox! Good post, Kiwi.
