If you’re an entrepreneur chances are you’re looking to increase your productivity by make every minute count.

But instead of looking at new tools, smartphones or systems, consider this sage advice for entrepreneurs from 350 years ago:

Blaise Pascal, Lettres provinciales, 1656-7

Je n’ai fait /cette lettre-ci/ plus longue que parce que je n’ai pas eu le loisir de la faire plus courte

Roughly translates: “I made this letter so long only because I didn’t have the time to make it shorter.”

What if you made your emails a maximum of two sentences?
