We spend our workdays with our fingers on a mouse, ready to click away from whatever we’re doing to get to the next task or obligation.
We’re rushed. We’re bombarded. We’re reading three things at once. Actually, we often don’t read at all. We skim. Quickly.
If your document or email is too wordy, if you take too long making your point, we’ll probably move on. Unfair, yes, but true.
