Five Sentences

 

The Problem:

E-mail takes too long to respond to, resulting in continuous inbox overflow for those who receive a lot of it.


The Solution:

Treat all email responses like SMS text messages, using a set number of sentences per response. 


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