They’re arguably the worst thing that ever happened to mankind – generic out-of-office replies. Join my fight to get rid of unremarkable out-of-office replies. To help, I’ve collected some great positive exceptions, starting with the one below.

Ok, this is technically not an out of office reply (those are usually tied to holidays), but I still wanted to highlight the autoresponder by serial entrepreneur Alex Ikonn:

Hi friend,
I really appreciate you reaching out to me. It means a lot! 🙂
I’ll be honest, I don’t check this e-mail often. I am currently putting all of my focus on making sure our ventures (Luxy Hair, Intelligent Change and new secret businesses) are getting all of the love they need to make the impact we have envisioned for them.  This is why I will do my best to reply to your e-mail but I can’t make promises.
I know I might sound like an ass having an auto-responder like this but making your dreams a reality is always priority and it’s important to not get distracted. E-mail is probably one of the biggest distractions we have in our society. You just have to decide – do I want to be remembered for answering e-mails or for making a positive impact in this world?
This would be my advice to you as well – Create a vision that you truly believe in and put all of your focus into making it real. This is the advice I am following myself.
If you are contacting me in regards to the Five Minute Journal or the Productivity Planner, please contact hello@intelligentchange.com. Our team does its best to answer e-mails within 24 hours on that e-mail and will do everything to help you out.
In the meantime, you can check out my latest video on my YouTube channel – http://www.youtube.com/user/alexikonn11 I update these regularly as it’s my way to communicate to many. So if you have a question, let me know and I might just make a video that will help you and others as well.
With gratitude,
