Don't beat around the bush

[Post published by Liviu on Liviu's [Computer Science] Blog]

Let's assume you address to person X in some matter.

Since X is very busy, X dislikes it when people waste his/her time with long and unclear messages, i.e. messages full of twists and turns X does not understand.

So, X would appreciate if you could not beat around the bush:
  1. Keep it short and simple
  2. Make it clear, concise and coherent

X thanks you for following this approach and is delighted to read your message now.

Note: feel free to use the ideas from this post in your daily activities: e-mails, scientific papers, presenting your ideas to peers etc.
