Email is a powerful tool

[00:08:00] “Someone who claims to check their email twice a day is probably not being truthful. In any case, it’s not a reasonable expectation to have because ain’t no one’s gonna believe you,” says Ari Meisel. 

[00:09:00] “You’ll completely alter the tone and discussion if you send an automated response and only check it twice a day, doing it manually or automatically either way checking your email just two times in a day is something I would not recommend it. I probably check my email 50 or 60 times per day, which people find surprising, right That’s because I’m a productive person. So, make good use of email. You can make email a powerful tool for yourself if you use it correctly,” he further adds.

Make your inbox productive

[00:14:00]  “In my opinion, control is both the antidote to stress and the antidote to overwhelm, because a lot of overwhelm is just a result of being taken up by the tide and trying to keep your head above water. So, our goal is to capture control over our inboxes and the other resources will help us achieve that,” says Ari Meisel.

Asynchronous vs Synchronous Communication

 [00:16:00] “For different types of communication, you need to have multiple types of communication tools as well,” says Ari Meisel. 

“Doing as much asynchronously as possible is going to be a drastic time-saver—now and in the future.” Here is the FREE TEAM COMMUNICATION GUIDE for you.

Ari Meisel's Head shot

More about Ari from his website,

“I’m 23 and I’m playing very big in life, but I’m out of control. I’m overwhelmed as a result of with my own doing. I have my hand in so much.

For three years, I’ve been giving new life to an old cigar warehouse I’m planning to lease out. I’ve set it up so that every contractor working on the project has to teach me their trade. So I’m doing plumbing, electrical, structural, flooring, heating – everything. At the same time, I’m on so many boards – Head of Binghamton, NY’s architectural review board; Chairman of all our city New Year’s Eve charity celebrations; Regional Airport Board. And on top of all this, I’m cramming in print, radio, and TV interviews three to four times a week.

18-hour workdays. Fast food. Every night drinking with my construction crew. And adding to my stress, I’m $3 million in debt on the residential loft redevelopment.
My lifestyle is a recipe for disaster. And then, suddenly, the blowback. Unexplainable excruciating stomach pain so bad it feels like I might die. Rushing to the hospital. Batteries of tests. Vomiting. Mental fog. And almost overnight, so little energy I can’t be on the job site. Most days I’m curled up in a ball of pain. And I’m losing weight fast.

The life I worked so hard to create is collapsing. Even my social life. I was dating a woman, Anna. But instead of being able to wine, dine, and impress her, I was continually stuck in the bathroom with deeply embarrassing, emasculating digestive problems.”
