Write daily to become a better manager

Writing every day for 365 days, I’ve learned to be a better manager.

What does management mean? If it means doing things right, then writing daily definitely improved my management skills.

To prevent no-writing days, I’ve sometimes prepared drafts in advance. Or recorded my voice, or recorded a meeting or a webinar or a family dinner. (Be aware next time we meet).

If my writing is about the daily retrospective on the past day, reflecting on what I did and how I did it, I am indeed raising my self-awareness.

More so, if I plan for the next day or the next week or, if you want to be philosophical, for the next decade, I am managing my life and my resources more intentionally.

The only act of thinking about the future, intentionally, systematically, critically, made me a better manager.

Manager of what? My life, my relationships, my job, my clients, my studies.

How and how much? Not easy to measure, but I can say I make fewer stupid mistakes, like missing due dates or forgetting fundamental notions.
