When I was in broadcast school, we spent a lot of time learning the rules of journalism. While that subject fills books, most 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 my personal growth. Every time I set goals and consider a different direction I ask –
Why? What? When? Where? Who?
Occasionally I need to ask HOW I’m going to accomplish my goal – but that usually takes care of itself.
