A generic subject line in an email is a lost opportunity, says productivity expert Jason Womack. To save precious seconds during the busy work day, Womack advises including the action you want to achieve in the subject line, as in "please print, reply and sign the attached contract." 

Jason W. Womack is founder of The Womack Company, a productivity-training firm based in Ojai, Calif. He is author of Your Best Just Got Better: Work Smarter, Think Bigger, Make More (Wiley, 2012).
