I think it’s interesting how you say that your writing skills increased by responding to e-mails. I guess that if you put yourself out there and say “How can I help you today” enough, you’ll get questions. And by researching and writing the answers, you grow and practice?
You don’t know how much you know (or don’t know) until you try to explain it to someone else, and then you become an expert after having explained it so many times? (true for almost any topic)
I’ve been asking the question, “how can I help?” for a very long time.
The Best Way to Improve Your Writing…..Justin – right on! In the book, Outliers, by Malcolm Gladwell, he describes 10,000 hours of doing ANYTHING as someone being proficient at whatever IT is…..hockey, violin, writing, etc. There is a physiological connection in that the brain synapses in response to repeated behaviors / actions seal the deal with one becoming and expert……good word! Thanks….Bruce
I totally agree, Bruce. Have you heard my interview with Mary DeMuth? She
talks about the same thing.
It’s amazing how such a simple, often heard, concept can be so HARD to grasp onto.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve heard, “Practice makes perfect.” my WHOLE life!!!
And I’ve discounted for almost that length of time too!
Now, I’ve finally grasped onto to TRUTH of that statement. If you want to get better at a thing, whatever that is, then you need to DO IT!!!
Rock on Justin!
I’ve been out there doing all day, Ivan. You?
