Know Your Audience - (Hades Riddle, 55 habits to reduce odds of a good life pt. 3, etc...)

Savvy Saturdays (11/20/21)

Savvy Idea: Figuring out who your audience can help you strategically write to their needs and problems.

Who I write to influences how I share my thoughts and insights.

Rather than aimlessly writing, by thinking of a specific person in mind, I can write towards their specific needs.

Whether it’s to an entrepreneur, someone earlier in faith, or a younger version of myself, I always try to think of one person I want to write to.

I’ve found that knowing my audience helps me create more impact through what I share, and ensures an effective message is communicated to help that audience work towards their goals and improve their lives.

Questions to ponder: 🤔

  • Who is the audience you are writing to?

Weekly Tidbits

Learnings, verses, & quotes to chew on… 🧐

Verse of the Week

"There is none holy like the Lord:

for there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God."

—1 Samuel 2:2 ESV

Challenging Quote

"Twenty years after my own graduation, I have come gradually to understand that the liberal arts cliché about "teaching you how to think" is actually shorthand for a much deeper, more serious idea:

Learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think.

It means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience.

Because if you cannot exercise this kind of choice in adult life, you will be totally hosed."

—David Foster Wallace on the importance of controlling your attention
