Five Sentence Email

View all blogs

Recently I’ve been taking too long to respond to emails, both client and personal. On reflection, it's mostly long messages I push aside whilst uttering those famous last words “I’ll reply later”...

When building a website I advise clients that less is more, that if we ramble on we are in fact wasting readers valuable time. Which is pretty inconsiderate really.

I’ve read of others success using the three and five sentence rules and I’ve decided to jump on board. I’ve added a note to my email signature (inspired by five.sentenc.es) and I’m trying my best to be succinct.

By applying this rule, I hope to give people the replies they like to receive, fast, concise and to the point.
