Replying too quickly

Like many of my peers, I am constantly on e-mail (work, personal, iPhone). Most of the day, as soon as I get something, I know about it. But sometimes when I respond too quickly I feel sort of weird and pathetic for being so fast, like I was just waiting for this e-mail and I had to respond to it immediately, even when that wasn't the case. I still do it all the time, although sometimes I wait, without much rhyme or reason. Do other people feel this way too?


  1. All the time -- no one wants to appear too available. Related: I just checked the time on your post before I submitted my comment to see what the interval is.

  2. I have the same fear. Rich, it's like you are inside of my skin.
