“Finally writing makes you smarter. Our working memories are incredibly limited. Writing opens a canvas that can allow you to form more complex thoughts, allowing you to understand harder ideas and solve tougher problems.” – writes Scott H Young author of the Book Ultralearning.
One of the major changes I made last year was to commit to write everyday and I did. This was preceded by multiple failed attempts to write regularly. The 5 points as advice in this article are simple (yet hard) but ones I can vouch for.
Here goes –
– Write a lot – This is the core. Set aside time everyday.
– Read a lot – This could be challenging. But try smart things like listening to books during commute or while at the gym.
– Edit a lot – The first draft almost always is not so great. Revisit writings after a few days and you will see what a reader sees. Be ruthless.
– Have a point to view – Why else would anyone want to read your stuff?
– Seek Feedback.
As a founder or a Sales person you know it is hard to communicate. Writing will help sharpen your message, build your profile and give you confidence.
