Brevity is defined by Merriam-Webster's online dictionary as shortness of duration, shortness or conciseness of expression.
Keeping things short is the way of the future. No longer are we seeking Dickens, three comma sentences. Think or read Bleak House for a real understanding. We have too much to read, or visually stimulate us each day at least during the working hours.
Whether it be written or verbal communications, keeping things short, is the way to go for the business world.
at my leisure I truly enjoy a long and lengthy book. I just reread
Edward Rutherford's epic novel "London". If you haven't yet read it and
have room to read, I highly recommend all 800 pages of it.
