Good writing tip for business but they missed a few THINGS (insert irony here.) Personally, I stopped using "Crepuscular" and "Douche Bag" in my business writing, helped a lot! #happyweekend

Be direct, be short, be specific #communication

Carlos Batara's comment, June 7, 2014 1:23 PM
I was taught to write using Strunk and White's "Elements of Style" as my textbook. One of their first commandments. "Omit needless words," still ring in my ears. This does not mean, however, all uses of words like "just", "really", "maybe", "quite", and the other terms mentioned in this video have no use in lean writing. "Perhaps" the author took a strong stance "just" to flag the attention of writers to careful use of such terms.
