Communication has become complicated in this “always on” world.
On one side, everyone expects us to be on, so they feel disconnected if we don’t respond.
On the other side, all this communication can be overwhelming.
There is no pattern so it creeps on you while you’re doing everything else.
Like all other problems, the solution is system.
Create rules that are lenient but give you structure.
They give you ways to act before you enter the fray.
See how much better you get.
