When I get a long e-mail I have trouble reading it. I usually get one idea or maybe two and then my attention is gone and the rest of it might as well not be there. Maybe I just skim the last part and don’t really read it. I’ve missed a lot of important instructions and information this way. I try to do better but you know how that goes. As a kind of reverse strategy I’m trying to keep my own e-mails and blogs pretty short for those of you who might have the same problem.
