The average reader has an attention span of about 20 seconds. This is why many things we write go unread. Many documents are unclear, full of "business-ese", contain grammatical and word-usage errors, or are just plain boring. People make judgments on your writing. Every day, people form opinions from the letters, faxes, memos and e-mails they receive.
When was the last time your organization focused on polishing writing skills (skills we use every day)? The answer for most of us is either college or high school. Many people don’t like the process and results of writing because they use ineffective writing techniques that waste their time and often produce bad results. There is an easier, and more skillful way to write.
The Art of Being Memorable
We never forget memorable people. Memorable people make us feel special. We think about them often, we remember what they say, how they say it and what they do. How is it that some people are more memorable than others? What is it that makes them unforgettable? Is there a formula? YES, there is! First, it is being authentic. Secondly, it’s studying the masters, learning the secrets that they knew. And third, it’s exuberance, that wonderful formula that keeps us from being boring.
