I answer an e-mail once every 6.66 minutes

Empty E-mail43 Folders grabs the New York Magazine article called "Where Work is a Religion, Work Burnout Is Its Crisis of Faith" where the writer discovered answering "an e-mail once every 6.66 minutes."

In the spirit of e-mail that I've been writing about this week -- like, how to reduce it -- 43 Folders brings on the other side with perfect timing.

The article notes:

"One has to wonder whether the developments of a high-speed world haven’t made burnout worse."

Um....who doesn't think so?

PS By the way, it is an extraordinary article that looks at many aspects of being burned out, not just e-mail. Jennifer Senior did a great job writing it over at New York Magazine and well worth the read.
