Writing every day for 365 days, I’ve learned to be a confident communicator.
I am more fluid and a better cold starter. I used to be doubtful, redundant, and sometimes slow in starting to write. Now I can get to the point faster and easier.
While reading my drafts I can sense evolution in my communication style. The first writings were longer, denser, and containing a lot of different concepts, not always related and meaningfully connected.
Although free-flowing writing has the exact purpose of letting the brain going free in the flow, doing a lot of practice, you will discover that flow to change.
Garbled mumbling accompanied by gibberish, slowly but steadily, evolves into better structured and expressed thoughts.
I’m now better at improvising, speaking in public, sustaining conversations, and most of all in writing down a draft, decently good, on the first try.
I can connect better multiple concepts without passing through drafts. Making connections on-the-fly renders your communication richer and more effective.
Transcribe your thoughts, frequently and intensely. You will become a better thinker and a better communicator.
