I’ve always been aware that any email I send, any post I write, or phone call I make is a potential interruption.
In fact, it’s most likely an ACTUAL interruption.
That’s because you’re bound to be already doing something when my message arrives.
So, I work really hard to be clear, concise and useful in every interaction I instigate with you, by:
- Sharing an actionable insight
- Making an offer to help you
- Shining a light on something I know works
- Trying to make you laugh (that’s a toughie, but I keep trying)
- Keeping it brief
And it’s the same for all of us.
Anything YOU send will be interrupting someone, somehow.
The only thing that’s in your control is whether it’s a welcome interruption, or not.
