Emails Last Forever

A note of caution – be careful out there with digital correspondence.  After you have sent it you have no control over where it will end up.

Hence I encourage people to write emails, texts and letters in a positive succinct manner that reflect the facts and not opinions or emotions that may malign someone.

If you have an issue with someone talk it out face to face in order to avoid interpretation of a written response.

When corresponding in writing, by email or via texting, ask yourself one question before mailing or hitting the send button, “If this correspondence was on the front page of the New York Times tomorrow, would I be okay with it?”
