    “Vagueness is the opposite of useful,” Geoffrey James writes for Inc. “The clearer the goal, the more convincing your e-mail will be.”

    1. Start by writing what you think you are trying to say
    2. Discover that the first few lines are wholehearted hogwash
    3. Rejoice in your determination to write something well
    4. Keep your hands on the keyboard, look for the conclusion when it appears
    5. THEN move that conclusion to the top of the message

    Here are more tips. 

    Got it…
