5 signs of email addiction....

Computer World has an article about the problem of "email addiction". The 5 signs that you - or someone you know - might have a problem:
  • You check your e-mail more than once an hour, even when you aren't on the clock.
  • You look at every message that comes in, as it comes in, either at or away from the office.
  • You feel the need to respond to messages instantly or within minutes of when they arrive.
  • You interrupt real, in-person activities on a regular basis to deal with e-mail.
  • E-mail has, in some way, interfered with your regular life -- in the form of sleep loss, relationship troubles, stress or any other noticeable effect.
Read the article to see how you can "curb your electronic enslavement".
