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.
