People get too many emails every day that are just boring. The same old thing, somebody wants some information, or to have a meeting, there’s an announcement about a charity fundraiser, a broadcast message that the parking lot will be under construction, you know what I mean.
If you’re going to write so much every day in emails, why not make them interesting? Write in poetry or prose. You’ll really catch someone off guard and maybe even spread a trend. You’ll find other closet poets emerge sending you their masterpieces and you get to know who has much of a right brain or sense of humor in your office.
If you need to send a short message or give a quick reply, just try putting a little rhythm and rhyme to it and see what happens. If your note needs to be longer, just throw in a little poem at the end
Granted, it will take you a little longer to put the words together, but you’ll have created something worth reading, and will have injected a little fun into someone’s day. It’s something to talk about.
It doesn’t take much
Just an arrangement of words
In a familiar form
So they all get heard.
See, it’s as simple as that. Try it. It’s good for your brain.
