sending email

We write so many emails a day that sometimes we forget to ask ourselves this incredibly basic question: “Is this email actually ready to send?”

I bet there are plenty of times (today) you’ve rushed to respond to a message—and completely forgotten to consider what you’re really trying to say. Or worse, sent it without giving it a once-over and spell-checking it.

These little details are important—no matter what your position is. And keeping them in check ensures that you always sound professional, respectful, and smart.

So check out this video and remind yourself to ask these eight questions before pressing send.
