Haiku on the Subject of Email

Today is World Poetry Day.

"I planned my whole day. It was to be productive. Then I checked email."

I planned my whole day

It was to be productive

Then I checked email

"I sent five emails. No one responded to me. I will send five more."

I sent five emails

No one responded to me

I will send five more

"You’re not effective. With countless unread email. Learn how to triage"

You’re not effective

With countless unread email

Learn how to triage
