Brevity in writing

During our induction training at McKinsey, a senior director once walked into our training room.

To emphasize the importance of brevity in writing, he said, “When God gave his commandments to Moses, he needed only ten bullet points. And you are not even God! Why do you need more?”

So next time you write, remind yourself – you are not God 🙂

The fewer the words, the more divine the writing.
