Don’t over complicate your message.
Being concise increases the effectiveness of communication by making it more accessible. Work to remove complications with the ultimate goal of being straightforward and easy to understand. When a message is clear and uncluttered it can reach more people. Being succinct respects the audience and their time.
Keep communications succinct by defining the goal of your message and sticking to it. Stick to it by not adding unnecessary thoughts or points. Do not feel that a message is incomplete if it lacks multiple paragraphs.
