Acronyms to Live By

Did you know we check our email an average of 74.81 times a day? This little factoid comes courtesy of University of California, Irvine, and the U.S. Army. While it can be rewarding to constantly check email, it can also be overwhelming, especially when it involves a seemingly neverending thread of messages. 

An excellent article from Quartz advocates the use of some stress-relieving acronyms to put an end to the madness. Acronyms such as BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front), NNTR (No Need To Respond), and EOM (End Of Message) send a precise message that the email exchange is complete.
