How to stand out while doing anything
Just like how I make dumb jokes when no one expects, yet it turns out to be funny!
The secret to creating a unique writing style is by doing what would be considered “unexpected” in your chosen category.
By Nicolas Cole in his book The Art and Business of Online Writing
The key to creating a unique writing style is by doing the unexpected, even in the world of business.
Just like how I make dumb jokes when no one expects, yet it turns out to be funny because the bar for humor in the world of business is very low.
Imagine this: you walk into a meeting with potential investors, armed with a PowerPoint presentation filled with charts and data.
But instead of bombarding them with mind-numbing statistics, you break into a rap about your company's growth trajectory.
Your colleagues stare at you in disbelief, but guess what? You've captured their attention like never before!
PS. I'm not suggesting you do that in an investors meeting. It was just a suggestion.
But do send me a video if you manage to do it. 🌚
Take Elon Musk, for example. He's known for his unconventional approach to business communication.
From tweeting about flamethrowers to launching a Tesla Roadster into space, he knows how to grab attention and keep people talking.
Love him or hate him, you can't deny that he has created a unique brand and writing style that sets him apart from the crowd.
So, the next time you find yourself drafting a business email or presentation, think outside the box.
Inject some humor, surprise your audience, and watch as your message resonates like never before.
