This post shouldn’t take your more than 2 minutes to read.

I have been developing an email course lately.

It’s a series of emails basically on my property investment journey and it covers pretty much all aspects of buying your first investment property and growing it.

I thought it would be useful to people who are new to property investment.

That’s a cheap plug right there. ūüôā

I have the ideas because it was a summary of my own journey. Of course, I would have lots of ideas.

Now the challenge is that how do I write¬†the emails/course so I don’t bore people? and how long should each email be?

I don’t want to write a war and peace. So I thought I would set a limit on the reading time.

Maximum 5 minutes sounds good because my research shows that average reading speed is 200 words per minute for a 12th grader.

So 1000 words is the limit.

We are often faced with this question in general. Is this too long, too short, too heavy, too formal? too this, too that?

This reminds me of an answer I would often hear on a technical conference call back in my days in IT.

“How long will it take to fix this issue?” – asked the manager

Answer from the engineers – “Well, how long is a piece of string? The time required depends on the complexity of the issue and resources required to resolve it. We will try our absolute best, however it takes however long it takes to solve the issue”.

Indeed, it all depends.

While we try to put a structure around it and endeavor to come up with a reasonable estimated timeframe to complete the task, it takes how long it takes eventually.

Whatever you are trying to accomplish in life.. have a vision, develop a strategy and figure out the tasks you need to complete in order to achieve your goals.

That’s all you can do, the rest takes however long it takes.
