I was reading the latest edition of the Asian Efficiency newsletter (do you subscribe to it? You really should!) and amongst all the brilliant tips was this pearler about email.

Try to keep your emails brief. We like to adhere to the magic number 6: no email should have more than 6 sentences. This forces you to get to the point.
This is a really interesting idea! It’s a challenge to keep your communication short, sweet and, most importantly, read quickly by your recipient.
How long are the emails that you send? How many of them are over six sentences long?
Can you cut your emails down so that they’re less than six sentences long?
I’m going to give this a try and see if it makes a difference – join me and let me know how it works out for you!
