How to sound profound

Sounding profound means simplifying to the point of uselessness.

For example, consider a few profound words I shared recently

How to create a great quote:

  1. Live.
  2. Learn.
  3. Journal.
  4. Summarize your journal in one sentence.

You’ve got to admit… that does sound pretty, dang profound, doesn’t it? Yeah, I thought so too. But check out the pattern:

  • Is it a simplification? Definitely.
  • Is it actionable? Not by itself. For it to be any, real use, you have to make it more specific.

Consider other statements you think sound profound. Test them. They all fit this pattern.

If all you care about is sounding profound, all you have to do is follow the pattern.
