The end

Caleb, my 4-year-old, asked me a question that left me speechless.

I was reading a story to him and we reached the last page, which had the words ‘THE END’ written in big bold font across the middle of the page.

“Dad, why is it written as ‘THE END’ instead of ‘THIS IS THE END’?”

“That’s a very good question, Caleb.”

“So what’s the answer?”

I’m yet to give him an answer, but I keep thinking about his question. 

Why was it not written as a full sentence especially for kids whose books are often relaying sentences and rhymes instead of phrases and clauses?

Why was it not written as just ‘END’ or even some other word?

How come we all say and write ‘THE END’ without asking questions as Caleb did?

That is the power of precise messaging – it causes people to adopt and reuse the same without asking why.

Takeaway

Mediocre messaging is often ignored but great messaging is unquestioningly adopted.

Is there some message of yours that others often quote? Share it with me here! 

Make your marketing message clear and irresistible. Be the one in the cave with the flashlight.
