I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Write More

Cameron Moll post­ed a thread on Twit­ter urg­ing peo­ple to write. Here are the four tweets quoted:

I’ve found it incred­i­bly dif­fi­cult to make time for long-form writ­ing the past few years. When I have, the cat­a­lyst has been remind­ing myself of the tremen­dous ROI as a design­er, man­ag­er, busi­ness own­er, and so on.
If you want to be a bet­ter design­er, write more.
If you want to be a bet­ter man­ag­er, write more.
If you want to be a bet­ter biz own­er, write more.
You can also sub­sti­tute “speak more” for each of these.
The act of syn­the­siz­ing what’s in your head for an audi­ence of crit­ics leads to increased ana­lyt­i­cal think­ing, self-aware­ness, clar­i­ty, and much more.
Last but not least, you inspire oth­ers to write—or at the very least ‘write’ by join­ing the con­ver­sa­tion you’ve started. 

It’s some­thing I’ve been think­ing about lots the last cou­ple of weeks. I’ve been want­i­ng to post to my blog more because I think it will be ben­e­fi­cial for me in many ways, one of which to help me build dis­ci­pline and self-con­trol in oth­er areas of my life.
The thing that real­ly strikes me about this Twit­ter thread, the whole thing would make a good blog post. It prob­a­bly would’ve been eas­i­er to post to a blog as well, like­ly have a longer life span, and con­se­quent­ly have more of an impact. Not all writ­ing on a blog has to be long to have an impact, if it’s worth string­ing four tweets togeth­er in a thread to make a point, it’s wor­thy of a blog post.
