I assume everything I’m saying in an email or saying on the telephone is being looked at, Michael Moore.

Proper email is a balance between politeness and succinctness. Less than five sentences is often abrupt and rude, more than five sentences wastes time, Guy Kawasaki.

Adapt your message and style to its medium or channel and the receiver. For example, a personal face-to-face conversation with a friend is not the same as writing an email to your boss. It is a completely different beast.


When writing an email consider these ideas:

Emails are a very efficient means of communication. They allow us to keep in touch, express our thoughts at any time, and solve many problems quickly. More often than not, when we call someone about a specific issue, we end up talking and rambling about something else (children, health, sports, etc.) that has nothing to do with the original topic. Besides, email allows us to store and share information, as well as send files as email attachments. You many need to use WeTransfer for big files (Send up to 2GB for free). It is the simplest way to send your files around the world.

Interpersonal face to face communication is healthy and essential for meaningful relationships. It is also sometimes easier and even more effective to explain things in person. Therefore, depending on the issue, the need for productivity at a given time, the receiver, etc. we should choose the means of communication that fits us best.
