When I was a baby DJ in broadcast school, I spent a lot of time learning the rules of journalism. While that subject fills books, almost everything we needed to know was –
Who? What? When? Where? Why?
If you know that information, you can tell a complete story.
Years later, I re-arranged the formula for personal growth. Every time I set goals and consider a different direction, I ask –
What? Why? When? Where? Who?
Occasionally I need to ask HOW I will accomplish my goal – but that usually takes care of itself.
