4 Awesome Thoughts So Far, Add Yours Now...

  1. Bob Burg

    Kumar, what an exceptional post, with some of the most important business (and social) advice we all need to know. Email – by its very nature – provides many potential communication gaffe’s. I believe your advice should be read and studied by anyone who utilizes this medium. And, today, that would be just about everyone. Thank you again for such a terrific article. And, thank you for your kind mention. I’m very grateful.

    • Bob, Thank you very much for your appreciation. It is my honor to have a few good words from you. I am glad that you thought this is a good post. Thanks again!

  2. Very sage advice Kumar. 

    A couple of points here:

    1) Something to reflect upon is that once an Email is sent, is not only the possible consequences of that Email sent in haste or anger. You’ve just given the other party or parties a permanent record of your indiscretion, and if detrimental enough to them, evidence in a lawsuit.

    2) As to Point 3… I agree that kind, respectful words are essential… By adding a personal signature to Email, you create the opportunity to encourage others as a final closing to the Email.

    For example:

    Warm Personal Regards,

    “May your burdens be light and your blessings heavy!”

    [Above the — is the closing to my letter. Below the — is my personal signature.]

    • Completely agree with you on your point about what happens when an email is sent while in haste or anger. That is so easy to do but that much difficult to correct after the fact.

      Adding personal signature definitely adds a great value to the email, Bill. Thank you for your recommendation.

      Thanks again!
