The bottom-up approach to composing an email
Every email interface guides us to compose the email incorrectly: First add the recipient, then subject, then the body, then the attachment. This leads to forgotten attachments, accidental sends, and meaningless subject lines. Here’s a better (proper) way to compose email:
- Insert attachment (so you don’t forget)
- Compose message in the body
- Compose subject line (summarizing the body)
- Finally – proofread, type in the recipient, and hit Send.
