How to Win @ Email Hunger Games

Executive Communication Speaker and Coach Karen Cortell Reisman Delete KeyI wanted to “delete” Marty Stanley, but I couldn’t!

One way I limit email-Inbox-itis (inflammation of your inbox) is to press my favorite key: “delete.” It’s swift and merciless.

When I got Marty’s email newsletter, my finger was poised to delete. I thought, “Hmmm, I don’t know her but this is compelling…. I’ll delete her next time.”

A month later another newsletter from Marty graced my carefully culled inbox. Again I wanted to “delete” her but she captured my interest. This routine kept repeating itself and it was like she was winning at Email Hunger Games.

Our paths crossed when I was selected to be on a national committee for the National Speakers Association (NSA) for which Marty serves as Vice-Chair. I then realized I was on her list due to a previous connection as members of NSA.

I told her, “Marty, every time I opened your email I wanted to delete you. BUT I couldn’t delete you! I wanted to, but your newsletter is good! Consider this a real compliment!”
