Can you spot the differences in two mentorship type requests I received last week?

Can you spot the differences in two mentorship type requests I received last week?


The first request is clear and actionable:


- It gives me easy times to choose from;

- The times are in my time zone (Pacific), even though the requester is not;

- It was sent to my business email, so makes it easy for me to check my calendar;

- Even the title of the email conveys everything I need to know.


The second request is vague and not actionable:


- “When are you free?” is such an open ended question;

- It was texted to me, even though I shared my business email in the text and said calendaring is faster that way.


I know both requesters and will talk to them both.


I reached out to the second person and explained this to them too.
