You should never send an email when you’ve just written it

  • Add in a recipient with the same first name as your intended recipient and your email goes to the wrong person, maybe even a competitor of the intended recipient
  • Reply all instead of reply and your thoughts get shared to everyone when you really wanted a side conversation with a colleague
  • Put down your initial thoughts to the problem being discussed, when you haven’t really answered the question being asked, making you look a little foolish
  • Answer quickly, and then realise you have something else to add, and then something else, and now you’ve sent 3 emails to the same group, making you look like you’re making it up as you go along
