How to Organize Emails

Reader Tip: Color Code Those Emails!

Last week, I shared a professional tip that I found quite handy, which is to reply to emails as soon as possible. Reader then chimed in with a great piece of advice for responding to emails. She comments:

"I color code my e-mails so I know which ones to address first. For instance, pink is addressed directly to me (since i'm cc'ed on so many e-mails). Red is from senior execs (so I know to answer immediately) and then color coded by client (since my calendar items are color coded by client). It's a bit OCD, but my system works for me!"
