day 3K337: The Best Time…

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”

According to the analysis that Axios did of 8.7 million emails the best time to send an email so that it gets opened is between 3pm-6pm on a Sunday. That size of sample audience does say something.  Given our short attention spans and overwhelming amount of information that everyone receives, we need every bit of advantage we can get to get our messages through.  That said, and I don’t know if Axios evaluated this or not, but I hate receiving work emails on the weekends as I feel like it is an intrusion. But, maybe that is just me.

I try to not to send emails on the weekends and especially on Sundays (even though I find myself guilty of it especially off of my phone) because I try to practice The Golden Rule.  And not on a Sunday because the principle of Sabbath is hard to keep and model if I am thinking about, constructing and sending to others emails for them to respond.  I take from the Axios analysis another example of times when we will just have to run against the grain of the culture and trust that God will take care of the rest.
