    39. 39. Three Sentences or Less 30 of 32 The Problem E-mail takes too long to respond to, resulting in continuous inbox overflow for those who receive a lot of it. The Solution Treat all email responses like SMS text messages, using a set number of letters per response. Since it’s too hard to count letters, we count sentences instead. three.sentenc.es is a personal policy that all email responses regardless of recipient or subject will be three sentences or less. It’s that simple. #LCN14 @MichaelRihani 32 Tech Protips. Professional and Personal Life Hacks.
