The key to finding happiness? The framers of the Declaration of Independence had it wrong. It’s not the pursuit of happiness, it’s the happiness of pursuit.

I just ate a lemon bar and two chocolate-covered Oreos, then did this workout. Talk about hard.

Make sure a 7th-grader can understand what you're trying to say and reader response will soar -- across all age groups.

In college, I loved Jane Austen books.She wrote eloquent, long sentences. And even though I am a sucker for short sentences, this didn't bother me. I cherished her flow and long-forgotten form. Her

For me, this solidified the fact that brevity is key in promotion emails. I have written email copy for my clients, and I sense sometimes I write more to present more value to the clients. For instance, if a client knows nothing about email campaigns and sees I've written an extensive amount of copy (5 paragraphs over 3), they'll think they're getting more bang for the buck they pay me. And because it reads well, they'll think: Wow, people are really going to respond to this.

But the opposite is usually true. People cherish their time and don't want to waste it on reading a few more paragraphs of copy. They want to understand the offer immediately (Subject, Headline, and Body Copy) and learn more about it immediately if it interests them (CTA).

Like Flint said in this presentation:

“Email is an annoyance. I don’t wake up in the morning with a passion to go through my email. I feel a responsibility. In fact, most my responses to email are fear-driven. If I’m missing something important today, it might harm me. Or it might harm my enterprise. I’ve got to look. And once I start to look and realize that there are 214 messages in this box, I want to reduce 214 down to 3. So I am going to slash and burn anything that I can possibly get away with evading.”

Though I'd heard of Sonic Youth, I'd never heard of Kim Gordon. Now because of this performance, I'll never forget her. Truly great.

If you have trouble separating biz from life, even your smartphone from life, maybe you can related to this.

It's an issue that's on my mind quite a bit and finally decided to spit it out in an untraditional way.
