Keeping your communication short and sweet is a good strategy today. Whenever you can, try to put things in a nice little nutshell. Try not to get too wordy. Zippy little e-mails, snappy DMs, and tiny texts will help you get across the ideas you need to convey without getting caught up in all the messy details. Other people are likely to go off on tangents today, but you just won’t have time to humor them like you usually do.
