Why You Need to Stop These 9 Email Bad Habits

Inc. Logo By Amy George of Inc. | Slide 1 of 10

The good news is the fixes are easy.

Lately, I've been super aware of my email habits and intent on correcting the bad ones.

I attribute this renewed email awareness to three things: the end-of-year flurry of work that results in an overflowing in box, my recent work with a business coach (more on this to come in future columns) and the daily litany of women speaking out about sexual harassment at work. Why that last one? Some email bad habits seem to be committed more by women, causing us to undermine ourselves, and we need to look out for ourselves in every way personally and professionally.

I've compiled a list of email transgressions that I tend to make and see others commit. Here are the biggies -- the nine email bad habits you need to stop right now. Don't let them hold you back in 2018
