Writing for impact

Good personal writing can encourage a real connection and brighten someone's day, be it a birthday day card, snail mail, a text message or a work email.Β 

When done right, it feels like someone is really noticing you.

Lead with vulnerability and curiosity

Any form of letter writing starts with committing to telling your story. It means sharing your feelings with the person and not just the hard facts. From there, try asking open-ended questions.

By offering the receiver some of your personal experience, you give them the space to respond in kind.

"The universal in the specific" tool

The idea is that we should aim to talk about experiences that the other person can relate to. This technique makes our audience feel seen and understood.

For example, instead of saying you're unprepared, you might speak about the feeling on the last day of vacation. It creates a fuller picture that better reflect your story.

Know your audience

Use a heartfelt message to celebrate with people on special occasions.

Don't be scared to inject some of your personality into your writing. However, ensure the stories you share are appropriate. If your friend loves jokes, then use humour with a birthday card, but trying the same if you're writing a thank-you card to your boss may be out of place.

Writing a letter will compel you to write in another way. It is not the same as a text message or an email.

When we put pen to paper, it fuels our creativity and stretches our vocabulary in ways other communication can't. To encourage the habit of writing, keep items at hand that promote writing. That could mean a fountain pen and unique stationery, journaling, or fun postcards.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
