One life skill a LOT of people lack

When someone sends you a question on an email, develop the capability to respond to it in email.

Most people respond to it over WhatsApp or call, suggesting:

  • They are not articulate
  • They do not value the other person’s time
  • They do not want to keep things in order for everyone to be aligned
  • They think only about themselves instead of valuing how a professional conversation should flow
  • In the process of getting things done “quick” they usually leave so much room for ambiguity and future disconnects, that the quick work often takes more time than anticipated.

I agree phone or video call is important sometimes, but understanding where it is not needed and it is merely our need for connection to another human being – is important.

Time is finite. So should be our ego.
