Write your email then wait 5 minutes before you click SEND.
You may discover:
- It needs an edit.
- You forgot an attachment.
- You’ve answered your own question (that you were about to ask via email).
- It’s none of your business (delete the draft!)
- You don’t have time for this conversation (or the thing you were about to promise!)
- While you were waiting, somebody else took care of whatever needed to get done.
If it’s a group email, wait TEN minutes, not five!
