Sentenc.es - A Disciplined Way To Deal With Email

Posted on by Randy Botti

The Problem

E-mail takes too long to respond to, resulting in continuous inbox overflow for those who receive a lot of it.

The Solution

Treat all email responses like SMS text messages, using a set number of letters per response. Since it%u2019s too hard to count letters, we count sentences instead.

two.sentenc.es is a personal policy that all email responses regardless of recipient or subject will be two sentences or less. It%u2019s that simple.

* See also: three.sentenc.es, four.sentenc.es, and five.sentenc.es.

Try it.
