No way you'd check email just once a day? Check this out!

Recently, I was delighted to receive this email autoresponder:

Thank you! Your email is received, and I will reply within the next 24 hours.I've found that I serve my clients better when I can check email once a day, so I appreciate your patience while I devote my full attention to one client at a time.Of course, if this is an urgent matter, please call my office at [nnn-nnn-nnnn]. I will return your call promptly. 

I've changed it a bit and I'd add a thank you- but you get the idea. If you can't handle the thought of checking email once- then make it twice. Block time on your calendar, too- or you won't be much better off than if you let your email interrupt you all day long.

Be brave- try it! Let me know what happens. Bet the good outweighs the bad.

OH NO! I couldn't! Could I? Heck YES. Yes you can!
