Do you ever receive emails like the one on the right?  (I bet you do!)

Subject line... vague.
Body... lacking details.
Requested action... unspecified.

Unclutterer recently ran an excellent post, "Four Steps to Uncluttered Email Communication." In it, they suggest ways to unclutter email communication to make it clearer, more complete, and more consise.... and when to just pick up the phone instead.

I know I'll be keeping these tips in mind as I'm crafting my emails!

(Thanks to Rose for passing along the Unclutterer's blog post)
