#24: Bridging the gap
Bridging the gap is the process of understanding and knowing where your current readers are at, and slowly allowing them to find newer connections in their mind, to bring them to the level you want them to be at.
If you start to talk to your audience with jargon and ideas they don't have a background on, they will soon start to lose you. It is your obligation to dumb it down and get to their level 1st. Be clear and simple in your approach. You need to explain concepts as if you are talking to a 5 year old child. Richard Feynman used to call this the Feynman technique. If you cannot explain your knowledge to a 5 year old child, you probably are not very clear with your own concepts. It is a stress test to see if you really have the depth or you just have superficial knowledge.
