Proof read your stuff. Edit…fact check…go over…email to yourself to read at work before you email anyone else…sleep on it…re-read…pass around to friends…ask for suggestions…re-write…spell check then re-read and re-write…
It’s easy to click send, to give an OK, to check mark, to approve, to say YES…it’s a lot harder to make sure that’s the right decision.
It’s the different between easy communication and backtracking, of a press release and a retraction…of a lie and an apology.
Everything today is about communication…try to make sure you’re doing it right. I try every day, I screw up a lot, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that I’d prefer to get in trouble for voicing an opinion based on experience rather than say something incorrect when I should’ve known better.
