How long do you think before sending an angry e-mail? Composing and sending an e-mail can take only few minutes but sending the wrong e-mail can have great consequences.
In the old days of pens and papers, sending an angry letter or memo would take time, you have to sit down and compose the letter, if you make mistakes you may need to start all over, you need to make sure you didn’t misspell any word and you have to take the time to deliver the letter or mail it.
Composing a regular letter takes considerably more time than sending an e-mail, the time you spend composing a letter and sending it is the time you are given to re-think about that angry letter or memo you are about to hand or mail.
How many times you have regretted sending an e-mail after clicking the “send” button? I know there are some technical tricks you can use to retrieve an unopened e-mail, but in normal circumstances once an e-mail is sent, there is a little chance of stopping the receiver from reading it.
We all get our moments at our work or in your relationships, sending e-mails should be the last thing you use when you are not sure about your judgment.
