Email is Not Tennis


Robby

Despite the recent demise of the Indianapolis Tennis Center on the IUPUI campus, many Hoosiers still enjoy a watching a good match. The best moments are often when both players are firing the ball back and forth for several seconds, building incredible excitement. These are the best moments of the game. Its also the worst model for email.

In your office, you may find yourself going back and forth with someone else over a long email conversation. Perhaps you each make good points and offer new ideas, but the match continues for ages. This is no way to have a discussion. Keep the tennis match on the court. If more than three or four emails go back and forth in one thread, pick up the phone or schedule a meeting.  Tell us how it works for you?
