Want to hack your life? Write.

January 07 2014

Few entrepreneurs and business leaders have developed a consistent writing practice. This surprises me. You won’t easily find an artist without a pen and notebook filled with scribbles. In case you hadn’t noticed, art and entrepreneurship are tightly bound.

Write. It doesn’t have to be pretty, it doesn’t have to be coherent. Thoughts, observations, experiences, reactions, fleeting ideas, failures. Even five minutes each day can yield tremendous results.

You’re offering yourself a valuable reference tool and creating a soundboard for yourself. Writing rituals are instrumental for self-analysis and reflection.

Make it a resolution. At least try it for a month.

Five minutes, every day.
