You’re on this page, no doubt because you clicked through from an email that you received from me, or from a link on the site somewhere.
Being the inquisitive type that you are, you’re now interested in why I have a 3 Sentence Rule when it comes to writing emails and replying to comments here on the site.
I receive approximately 50+ emails a day and like to reply to as many of them as I possibly can within a day or two. However, I’m a business owner (much like you, probably), and also have other daily tasks that I need to take care of, too.
I generally only check emails twice per day. Once in the morning hours, 7 am-8 am and again in the evening hours, 5 pm-6 pm.
Putting in place my 3 Sentence Rule allows me to give people the replies they like to receive, yet in a way that’s focused, concise, and gets to the point – fast.
You should try doing it, too.
