Wait to hit send…

Have you ever sent an email or text message to a colleague, or more importantly, a potential employer, and immediately wanted to retract it because of a grammatical error, typo, or you realized it may not be received in the manner you’d hoped? 

We are sometimes quick to respond to emails and text messages; not giving them our full attention so that our response is conveyed in the manner we want. 

Try this:

  • Check it once
  • Check it twice
  • If it’s REALLY important, print it and read
  • Look away
  • Check it again
  • Then hit send
