The No Hello Club

Why?

Unnecessary pleasantries waste time and effort in task-based conversations. In the No Hello Club we never start a request for information or help with a useless phrase like "Hello".

If someone has shared this with you or has this link in their profile, it means they won't be offended if you skip the pleasantries and get straight to the point. Do still be polite, and feel free to have social conversations!

Consider this conversation:

Hello

Hey

How are you?

Fine thanks!

Can I ask you a question?

Sure

Awesome! My question is ...

This is the answer ...

Aw jeez, so simple. Thanks!

To get the answer took nine messages. With each message adding significant delay thanks to context-switching.

The most effective method of asking the question? Just ask the question!

Hello, I hope you are well!
I have a question, I hope you don't mind: the question ...

Hey, I'm good thanks! Of course, the answer is ...

Aw jeez, so simple. Thanks!

Being succinct and effective does not have to be rude,
it demonstrates respect for the other person's time.
