TOUCH ONCE “A great deal of time is spent revisiting old email.” 4. TEACH REDUCTION (face to face & phone call communication) “Sometimes people email for the sake of interaction and the need to ‘be heard’.”

  5. Sanctioned TIME • Open your calendar • Create a 15-20 minute window 1-2 times a day to respond to email • Commit to this sanctioned time, otherwise email will rob you of time you could devote to the MITS (most important things)

What do you think you are going to do about that? Did you need some help brainstorming ideas?” • “I received your email and my response is __________. Stop by if I can help you with anything else. It’s good to see you.”

  15. Dear _____, The reason I am writing you (I tried calling, but your secretary said you had not reported to work at the time) is that I would like you to emphasize at next meeting with the teachers the importance of consistently enforcing the discipline rules especially the rules on students being on time to class with appropriate materials to work with (you know, like pencils and paper-that kind of stuff) and the gum-chewing rule. The last two years things have been deteriorating and last spring was a real mess--too much teacher inconsistency! I don't like to complain about my colleagues, but something's got to be done before the kids take over the school. What this school needs is a real crackdown. I have heard that you are the type that is prepared to "bite the bullet" and in my judgment, that time has definitely arrived. Sincerely, Seth N. Stone

  16. Dear ______, I hope this year is going to be different! I live near the school and for several years now, I have had trouble with students vandalizing my flowers and my yard when they walk home from school. I hope this year SOMETHING WILL BE DONE! Maybe you could say something to the students at the first assembly or maybe over the PA system. I know something's got to be done this year or else I am going to the school board on this. It's not right. I am a taxpayer who pays for these schools and I don't even have any kids. I want something done this year! Alice Snap

  19. Dear _______, The advice you gave me about how to handle _____isn’t working. I’ve tried everything we discussed and it’s hopeless. I’m at the end of my rope and I can’t figure out what to do next. Maybe I’m not cut out for this and am in the wrong place. Something has to give. Adda Loss
