Wanna spice up your emails?
Whenever you’re asked to do something, don’t wait until you’re done.
Just send an email that says you’ve well received the instructions, and you will quickly start working on it.
Then, afterwards, send an email that says you’re done and attach your results if needed.
It’s extremely satisfying and useful to have acknowledgments, especially in business and person-to-person interactions.
It shows that you’ve well received the information, and that you’re aware of what you’ve got to do.
That’s why so many mobile apps have the “read” badge.
