  • The differences between “asynchronous” and “synchronous” ways of communicating, and why they matter
  • Cal’s idea of the “hyperactive hive mind”
  • How email scrambles our thoughts and makes us anxious
  • How to identify the parts of our work we can move outside of email
  • How Cal manages his own email
  • Key mindset shifts to make with email
  • Overcoming the guilt of not checking email
