Keep it short, keep it clear

No one likes to read a long email, no one likes to read a 10 pages document. Not even 5 pages.

Our time is precious. Our attention is short. If you need to communicate something with your pears on written form, we need to keep it short and simple ( KISS ).

“five.sentenc.es is a personal policy that all email responses regardless of recipient or subject will be five sentences or less. It’s that simple.”

five.sentenc.es

When I came across this “manifesto”, or like they call it, a personal policy, it just resonated with me. It’s simple. It’s clear. It’s short.

Resist the urge to write a long text. If you have a complex thing to discuss, get up. Go have a chat, it’s easier, takes less time, and the information will not be lost.
