When I read the industry answer key to print, I often find myself thinking, “Wow, that’s really good advice.” I’m glad it’s there, though. And, as an industry expert, I can read it and learn from it.
For years, I’ve been reading industry reports, industry blog posts, industry news, and industry whitepapers. And even though I’m a journalist, I’m often still surprised by how much I learn from these documents. So when I read the industry answer key for the print industry, I thought, Wow, thats really good advice. Im glad its there, though. And, as an industry expert, I can read it and learn from it.
The industry answer key is a list of industry-standard questions for you to answer on a whiteboard in front of a group of your peers. Im a big fan of these, which I found really helpful during my first few weeks of writing my own industry blog. I had a lot of questions that I wanted to ask, but didn’t know the answers to, so I got a lot of feedback from folks who knew what the answers were.
Yes, the industry answer key is a great way to learn from what your peers are saying, but its also a useful way to help you answer your own questions. For instance, if you get a question about a product/service that you don’t think is being talked about, you could turn the question into a question about the industry, and then provide a list of industry-standard answers that you think your peers could answer.
I know I was guilty of this a couple of times, and it was annoying and somewhat frustrating to have to read off the entire list to get the answer I wanted. I’m glad I wrote down an answer to the question, but I was still tempted to go read all those industry-standard answers instead.
I know that it’s not the most helpful thing to do to try to make your peers answer a question in the industry’s interest, but the more you read the more you get a general idea of how industry-standard answers are delivered and what they would mean for your specific industry. This way, you don’t get the answer you really want, but at least you get an idea of what industry-standard answers are and why they’re important.
It’s still a good idea to read industry-standard answers, but they’re not the only way to find out what the answers to your questions are going to be. I like to take notes and keep track of what I find while working through questions. I like to see the answer for myself, and if it’s not something I see in the industry standard, then I will try to find out where the answer is.
One of the things about the answers to questions I read is that they are written by people who are experts in their field. If I don’t see the answer in the industry standard, I will likely do some research on my own. For instance, I was reading this question and the industry standard was to pick up a weapon before you hit your target, but I wanted to check the questioner’s sources to see what he was getting at.
The questioner was asking about the ability to read a map. However, the answer is that you can use the map to determine where your target is located. This is because your map includes the exact locations of the enemies. Once you’ve determined this, you can use the map to determine if you can hit your target.
The map that the questioner was referring to is called a “line of sight” map. This map is usually created by placing a line on the ground that has a specific range of sorts. Once you have your line of sight, it’s possible to determine where someone is physically and use the map to determine where they are mentally.
