Writing, the Mental Workout

Clarity of thought is a key component of success as an entrepreneur (it’s also helpful in life in general). Some people are better than others at clearly communicating their thoughts. The good news is that clear thinking is something that can be improved.

Just like anything else you want to improve, you must practice it. So how do you go about practicing clarity of thought?

In my experience, writing is the best tool to improve clarity of thought. Writing about a topic forces you to focus your thoughts and organize them coherently so others can understand your points. I like to think of it as a mental workout. The more you write, the more practice you get at clarifying your thoughts.

If you want to think more deeply about something or improve your overall clarity of thought, consider picking up the habit of writing. My takeaways from publishing my daily writings for over three years are here.
