Improving your E-Mails

Source: Fast Company, Feb 2017

Before you dash off a hasty email and risk offending or annoying the receiver, check out these common but unpopular lines and opt for an alternative instead.

1. instead of “SORRY TO BE A BURDEN/BOTHER”

say: “Thank you for being patient with me.”

2. Instead of “WHATEVER YOU THINK”

say: “I’m open to your ideas and am happy to do some more brainstorming.”

3. Instead of “PLEASE ADVISE”

say: “Let me know if you have any thoughts on how to proceed with this.”

4. Instead of “I HOPE IT’S MORE TO YOUR LIKING”

say “I’m interested in your feedback on this update.”
