Five Ways to Write Better

It doesn’t matter who you are: a business owner,  marketing director, or revolutionary leader, you depend on good writing to grow your impact.

And I bet you feel one of two ways about it. You either dread it, but drag yourself to do it anyway. Or, you absolutely hate it and avoid writing at all costs.

I don’t offer the option to “love it” because the only people I’ve met who love writing are writers, and if you’re here—that’s probably not you.

What We’ve Learned from Travel: Part One

It took me two full years of constant travel before I finally decided to track our trips.

On January 9, 2017, I wrote out Travel Tracker on the top of a journal page, and I committed to adding every flight, car ride and in between. I watched as the list slowly—and at the same time quickly—grew week after week.

At the end of last year, I counted 32 trips, more than ten destinations, and discovered no trip lasting longer than several weeks. When I share these stats, most people wonder how we manage to travel this much—without losing our heads.

People Who Write Well, Do Well – Part One

During my first job out of college, I was given a book by the company’s CEO: Writing That Works; How to Communicate Effectively In Business by Kenneth Roman.

Why Writing Heals

Good writing doesn’t only support your business. It supports your healthy, balanced and expressive life.

It’s true: journaling has shown to support emotional health, personal intelligence and it can affect the way we approach our life long term.

Personally, writing in my journal has been a critical step toward easing my hyper mind and busy personality. And it’s undoubtedly helped; I experience less anxiety and I’ve grown into a calmer, more centered individual.

Of course, there’s another bonus: people who write often, write better and consequently accomplish more.
