I am working on a layout but not quite ready to share yet. Maybe later today. But my FIL sent me a link to something that I am struggling with at the moment, and I bet you are too!
Here is the Email charter. I certainly intend to adopt this. If we all did think how much time we could free up!
|10 Rules to Reverse the Email Spiral|
|1. Respect Recipients’ Time
This is the fundamental rule. As the message sender, the onus is on YOU to minimize the time your email will take to process. Even if it means taking more time at your end before sending.
2. Short or Slow is not Rude
3. Celebrate Clarity
4. Quash Open-Ended Questions
5. Slash Surplus cc’s
|6. Tighten the Thread
Some emails depend for their meaning on context. Which means it’s usually right to include the thread being responded to. But it’s rare that a thread should extend to more than 3 emails. Before sending, cut what’s not relevant. Or consider making a phone call instead.
7. Attack Attachments
8. Give these Gifts: EOM NNTR
9. Cut Contentless Responses
