An Email Continuum

Here's what I'm picturing:

[--------------------0--------------------]
Answering                             Never
Every                                Answer 
Email                                 Email
Immediately                            Ever


Which side of the continuum do you fall on?  


If you're too far to the right, you might be missing out on some key dialogue and relationships, because e-mail is now a standardized form of communication.


Too far to the left, and you're going to think you're working hard but at the same time never really accomplish as much as you could or should. 


Like most continuums, the key is being somewhere in the middle.  Answer what you need to when you need to, but don't confuse an empty inbox for success.
