Write, write, write, write, write

Stefan Sagmeister, one of the most prolific creative thinkers of our time, believes that keeping a diary supports personal development.

Writing daily, or even just regularly, not only helps promote personal development, but also creative development. Writing allows us to take the intangible and make it real, it helps us to explore our thoughts and ideas, history and culture, through physical means that we can see rather than just imagine.

This is why you should be using 750 Words, a powerful (yet very simple) online website that prompts you to write at least 750 words every day.

You don’t need to write a novel, you don’t have to write a journal, and you don’t even need to worry about your spelling or grammar. Just taking the time to sit down and write something every day helps you explore yourself, your thoughts, your ideas, and most importantly: your hopes, dreams, fears, and desires.

If that doesn’t convince you that there is a lot of value of writing daily, consider this report which explains how writing about your anxieties can help alleviate them.

Here’s a challenge to you: for the next seven days, try to use 750words.com daily. Write at least 750 words, about whatever you feel like writing at the time. If, after those seven days, you don’t feel any different, more creative, or less anxious, then you can at least say you tried.
