"I emailed Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks and star of TV’s Shark Tank, because he is known for responding right away to anyone who emails him, and because now I can give this story the headline, “Mark Cuban’s Advice About Email” for LinkedIn. I wanted to know, did you always email this way, or did you only start once you became the boss? His answer (over email): “Yes.”"
Once I start down that route, the emails start to pile up, and tasks arriving via email need to be managed more effectively.
but in reality this only works with those of whom you have a prior relationship. CEOs can do this because (a) they have power over you and (b) you have an image of them that a short email will not tarnish.
but for you the plebian, people will judge you based on whatever perceptions they have, and for 90% of your peers it will be a curt email.
Meh, if I miss something you deal with it. BOSS.
"Treat all email responses like SMS text messages, using a set number of letters per response. Since it’s too hard to count letters, we count sentences instead."
I reply to maybe 1% of my actual email, and I can't filter it for the once in a never that its THE WORLD IS ENDING, and they need a response.
