Email attack!

Average number of emails received per working day:

  • before Christmas – 35
  • over Christmas and New Year – 15
  • since the 5th January – 65

What’s happening?
Looking at the totality – I see that there has been a considerable increase in the number of inter-team emails at Breathe Business – after all there are 8/9 of us now if we include close independent contractors that we are in daily contact with.
But also I notice that our clients have all suddenly started asking questions again.
It’s that annual phenomenon – “back to work after the break”.
I’m in London the whole of this week – a variety of practice visits and speaking engagements.
Back to living in hotels 🙁
