Master the short note…updated for 2005

I am a long time, true blue Harvey Mackay fan.  I just read a great post of Keith Ferrazzi’s at  that is the most poignant modern day version of Mr Mackay’s advice. 

Mr. Mackay taught me to be a master of the short note.  A skill I still think is invaluable.  How many hand written notes do you get in the mail these days?  Keith gives a specific example here of how to email a new contact and what elements the email should include.  It’s easy and effective. 


  • I agree; it’s easy to keep stationary at your desk, and there’s no better way to say thank you than the handwritten note, especially compared to email…
