“Words are the atomic unit of the internet.

With the stroke of a pen, you can build your network, improve your thinking, and create opportunities for yourself.

Until now, the internet has connected us with people in our past. But writing online connects you with the people in your future. As Derek Sivers once wrote: “The coolest people I meet are the ones who find me through something I’ve written.”

In any field, the most successful people double as writers. Chefs write recipes, comedians write jokes, and entrepreneurs write business plans. The examples are endless.

Done For You Blog Says: My favorite line: “Writing is like weightlifting for the brain.” If you’ve ever lived in fear of an empty white page/screen, this article will change your thinking about that. Instead of fear, think of it as an opportunity to clear your mind and “re-think” by re-writing till what you’ve written is crystal clear so that you can teach that to others. I got more out of this free article than from most paid courses on writing. Highly recommended.
