How to Start Thinking Better

** Ideas bubble up and pop all the time in our minds, it’s only with writing that you can capture the essence you wanted!

How to Start Thinking Better

Here are a few ways you can improve your thinking with writing:

1. Have a written meeting, before having your face-to-face one.

Are you going to discuss something with colleagues? Pretend the meeting isn’t happening and that you need to communicate your plans entirely via email. Draft up an email with your thoughts.

It doesn’t matter whether you send the email or not. Having thought through your ideas clearly, you’ll be able to communicate them intelligently when the meeting comes.

2. Vexing problems should start with paper and pen.

Are you struggling with an important problem in life or work?
Your first instinct should be to get a piece of paper and start writing it down. Jot down all the elements of the problem, including all your different ideas for a solution.

Many problems that feel overwhelming are suddenly simplified once you write them down.

3. Confusions are cleared up by writing down explanations.

One of my most popular studying tactics was the Feynman Technique. This technique boils down to using writing to make it easier to understand hard problems in math, science, and other subjects.

Often, simply the act of writing down an explanation will resolve the confusion. This is because the different components of the ideas are too large and numerous to stitch together into a completed understanding. Writing it down solves this capacity constraint and allows you to piece together a completed idea.

Writing Doesn’t Record Your Thoughts, It Is Your Thinking

James Clear, a friend, and bestselling author, once told me that he doesn’t write to record his thoughts but to figure out what he even thinks about a topic.

I feel the same way. Without writing, it isn’t simply that I would have tons of unrecorded ideas, bumping around in my skull, but that those ideas wouldn’t exist. They are created by the act of writing, much more so than they are being recorded.

If you don’t write regularly, the quality of your thinking suffers.

Writing gives you access to an external brain, sharpens your ideas, and makes your thoughts smarter.

Consider this: Take whichever problem you find most challenging right now. It could be a life problem, relationships, academic or professional. Try writing about it every day for the next thirty days. You’ll be surprised at how many difficulties disappear once you’re able to write about it.

** "Try this element in your personal thinking to sharpen both your learning and make better use of your knowledge!"
Because knowledge is only as good as the information you have and really know how to use!
