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.

* To begin using this system, optionally copy this text and paste it into your e-mail signature:
Q: Why is this email five sentences or less?
