My habit is to always bcc myself on all emails sent. This habit has made a world of good for me. Too much to say here why. Another benefit of this habit, is that you know the email was sent. Tech is not a perfect science. Too many times we send emails assuming the recipient received what you sent. And no – they didn’t.
And so I make it a practice to bcc to my self via a number of ways. One way is to have a special gmail account that is a net catch all for this back up strategy. There are a number of other approaches which I will share on my youtube channel and rgfuniversity micro learning courses.
