I created a simple infographic with the words:
Don't just survive - thrive.
When I first thought of this as an infographic, I thought of using this:
Thrive, not just survive.
Why did I choose the first where "thrive" is at the end? Because I decided what I wanted to leave people with was the concept of thriving, not surviving.
One of the tools in my favorite writing book, Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer by Roy Peter Clark is about putting your strongest words at the beginning or the end of a sentence.
I'll take it a step farther... put the strongest word that you want to be the last thing your reader sees at the end.
Thrive and survive are both strong words, and according to Clark, I followed the rule nicely by having them at the beginning and end and not lost in the middle.
But it's more than that. It's what you want your readers to walk away with.
And that should be the last word.
