This is a challenge for me, a challenge I must take > pass > and only remember in laughter that I was once like this.
Imagine this post was like two or three screen scrolls long(er). Those that are closest to me maybe would have had the patience to read it entirely or at all.Â Actually, looking back at my old long mails, post or memos, etc – I my self do not have the patience or the time to read them.
Now indeed it gets that long because, in my case, I don’t want to miss anything out and try to make sure it’s all clear. But it’s not efficient, the message is notÂ received – not evaluated, no feedback / reply – it’s literally into the void. Sure sometimes it makes sense, like when you are writing a book I suppose; but most of the times it’s just wasting what could be a possibility to share, get evaluated, evolve.
What can be done? On one hand: attention on details is good, so if you do have the time to write the whole thing do it. But if you want to share or get evaluated, give only the essential and let people know there’s more if they want it. That’s the solution I found for my self for now anyway.
Here’s an example, instead of a long post on time management (it applies in content management too):
“Collect all in one place > Choose the essential > Eliminate the rest > Organize the remaining”
Got any other perspectives / solutions? (appreciate it)
PS. There’s more.
