Email Support Data

I thought it might be interesting to look at my last chunk of emails by what hour they were answered.

It does seem to show some patterns. Some that may not be healthy for any real separation between on/off work hours.

It is good that I’ve got no email in the 1AM to 5AM zone.

It is bad (probably) that I answer a large amount of email around 9PM. I probably also need to think harder about creating some defined email response windows so that email is not interrupting work that requires more focus and concentration.

It’s easy to let the busy work drag you down while feeling “productive.”
