I was tired. I felt that I was overworked. I couldn’t be bothered. I was very grumpy and only wanted to eat chocolate and junk food to try to cheer myself up.
I tried to work. Replied to an email and instantly regretted.
The email sounded pathetically foul.
Inked in my head was a piece of advice directly for me:
Just try to be careful about seeing it from the recipients point of view. Think about their agenda and expectation and then balance it with ours. You are very efficient which is great but give yourself an extra minute to think about these things before you write.
That morning, I decided to stop writing until I am 100% sure I am writing in the best tone.
It was a good decision.
