    message and information overload

    On a daily basis we receive, sort and send to and fro a bombardment of messages. Via Email, WhatsApp, Social Media, Teams, Zoom, Slack, you name it. The list gets longer day by day. We have traded actual productivity for immediate response times.


    The increasing number and variety of formats undeniably amounts to stress. In working and in personal life. It’s time absorbing and often very frustrating. And it’s piling up too! Strangely enough though the technology is developed to increase our productivity, it often seems to achieve the actual opposite. Message and information overload! Work stress!

    Isn’t that an expensive way to waste (precious) time?
  • Get out of the message jungle

    Very few of us have received tutoring and training in managing our (increasing load of) messages. We’ve sort of evolved with the technologies and have been drawn into their many pitfalls. In modern business email ranges from a top three stress creator to a highly ignored medium. 


    Richard Wolfe has created a few simple tools to help you find easy ways to make technology work for you as opposed to against you. He has dedicated himself to helping people use and control email and manage their messages easily and productively. With a large bonus: more time to do what really matters.


    My mission: to fill the void in knowledge of managing messages productively

  • Let us train you

    The Speedmailing Training is aimed at helping to deal with the daily deluge of Email. In group (and individual) training sessions we clarify how to get and stay on top of tasks, with less time wasted on processing, tracking, and finding messages. Each session equips participants with handy tricks to simplify and speed up daily email processing. The end result: (always) an empty inbox, a much clearer overview of to-dos, and many more hours spent actually getting things done on a daily basis.


    The workshop and book Speedmailing helps you to do just that, showing you how to turn managing email into a simple skill rather than a daily burden.
