Don’t put anything in writing that you wouldn’t want to see on the front page of the New York Times.

“I can’t believe you wrote that in an email.”

Because whoever is the most embarrassing person in the world to see what you just wrote, is online too.

And they’re going to see it. As will all your future employers, customers, colleagues, and friends.

So for the New Year, make a new promise to yourself, to never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever send embarrassing emails.
