  • Why does this meeting exist? — If you can’t come up with a sentence or two that says why you scheduled the meeting, you should consider what that implies.
  • Stop writing like an engineer — Putting the important part at the end doesn’t encourage them to read the whole thing; it just means they move on without reading the important part.
  • Perception matters — make people feel heard — Making someone feel heard doesn’t mean doing whatever they want; it means they feel like you’ve made a good faith effort to understand them.
