FYI'd To Death

FYI is one of the worst workplace sins.

Most of us get roughly 50-100+ messages a day over email, in person, and through other platforms.

The FYI is workplace sloth. It is shuffling around information with no attempt to make it meaningful to whom you are sending it.

Don’t add another message to someone’s plate without SIMPLIFYING it and providing your INSIGHT.

Your simplification of the message is the important part, the original message is added detail.

As Mark Twain famously put it: “I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”

Care about you audience by putting in the time to simplify the message.
