Context.

“There is no extensive rationale provided for each item, something that is often unnecessary in an informed context and can often act as psychic baggage that telegraphs one of two things:

  1. You don’t believe the leader you’re outlining the project to knows what the hell they’re talking about.

  2. You don’t believe it and you’re still trying to convince yourself.”

This entire article is great.

One of those articles I’ve saved to reference later, and have a difficult pulling one piece to quote from.

I key in on context here as the actual email referenced was part of a larger and longer discussion.

And there’s no need to rehash the entire discussion for all involved in this email discussion.

If we’ve been doing our jobs in paying attention and being involved as far as our roles and responsibilities outline, this is the amount of context needed.

Nice.
