Emails - not always a great way of communication, but sometimes a necessary means of communication.
Today, we have a call to action. Your task is to send that email you have been putting off before it is too late.
There is something about actually clicking on the send button to send that all importabt email that your future career is depending on. The nerves kick in and you don't want to do it. You delay... chicken out. STOP.
Today, take that step and click send. Yes, by the end of the day I will have expected you to have clicked on send. Proof-read, finish your draft and do whatever you need to do to get you over that final hurdle and click on send.
Just don't forget to proof-read. Whether the email is to your boss, HR department, recruiter or a different contact altogether do remember that you are trying to make a good impression.
- Proof-read / Spell Check
- Check any attachments
- Double check email address
- One final look....
