Communication Tip #57
“I would have went to the meeting.”
Most of us cringe when we read this, but some do not. (“I would have GONE to the meeting.”)
Some of us–because of lapses in our education, attention in school, or associations afterwards, routinely write or punctuate incorrectly–and we don’t know it.
For that reason, ask someone to proofread your emails for a while. You will become aware of your chronic mistakes and stop making them.
Regardless of your expertise, when composing important emails or documents, have at least one other person read them before you send or publish them.
