Have a question about the approach of checking mail 3 times a day (on a schedule).
What do you do when the slot isn't available? Skip the check, or move it?
I like the idea a lot, but find my schedule moves around a lot - my hours are different on different days, and while mainly desk-based, I do have a lot of meetings etc.
So eg. if I wanted to use the 1st half hour every day, that's not always going to be possible. If it isn't, or an urgent meeting comes up - should I move the check backwards and still go for 3 per day, or just ignore it and wait until the lunch check?
I'm not obsessed by having EXACTLY THREE!!! (right now I'm in email slavery mode by comparison), but just curious how this would normally be dealt with by senior managers, given their schedules would be crazier again.
