Before you begin to write your next email or letter or report spend a few minutes collecting your thoughts.
If you don’t know what you want to say before you write you will find what you do write drifts and meanders as you are figuring out your point.
With business communication your reader’s time is valuable. Don’t waste their time: get to the point of your message up front.
Once they know what the key message is they can decide whether they even need to read the rest of the document.
