I believe most humans should write daily.
I mean, we all do, whether through emails, a report, or a social media update.
But I'm speaking about a dedicated chunk of time to write. 15-30 minutes where all you do is write.
What does that look like?
- Structured writing about your feelings in a journal
- Brain dumping whatever is on your mind into a notebook
- Writing content for social media or an article for your blog
Why am I bullish on this?
Writing leads to better thinking. The more you write, the more you think.
And by thinking a lot, you will slowly get better at thinking. And when you can think clearly and well, you will make better decisions.
And better decisions lead to a better personal and professional life.
Too many people live fast-paced lives where they rarely think. They may use mental heuristics or biases, but they don't spend time critically thinking. Unfortunately, this leads to bad decisions that can even ruin a future.
And by sitting to write every day, you begin to think more critically.
It doesn't happen overnight, but it's a clear benefit I've derived from writing daily for a year plus.
Wouldn't it be nice to think with greater clarity resulting in a higher decision-making capacity?
If yes, then write every day.
