Email Hell

Ever get caught up in an email stream that seems unending? For example:

Joe: “Anybody want to go out for lunch?”

Mary: “I guess, where do you want to go?”

Bill: “Depends, where you thinking of going?”

Joe: “I’m thinking sushi!”

Mary: “Sounds good.”

Bill: “When do you want to leave?”

Mary: “How about 12:30?”

etc., etc., etc.

Q: How do you deal with the proliferation of email messages like this chat?

A: Joe: “Anyone want to join me for sushi at lunch? If so, meet me in the lobby at 12:30. See you then, or meet us at Acme Sushi on Hwy 28.”

Chatting is best done using a chat service.

Give a direct solution, don’t leave things hanging that have to be discussed.
