I read a lot, and whenever I come across something beautiful, I save it to use later. My Evernote is full of articles which I have never published and quotes from various books and blogs. It’s very fulfilling and enlightening to read other people’s blog, they always teach me something.
I also write a lot, not to publish on my blog but to practice the art of writing. Sometimes I never read what I have written in those articles due to lack time, besides, I don’t have to since it’s just the practice and the articles are often much longer than what I share daily on my blog. Practicing is never glorious, it’s pure hard work which nobody will see directly but everyone will notice it’s effect later.
That’s the beauty of practice.
Ideas flow when we don’t judge our own thoughts. While writing the blog posts it’s hard not to judge however during practice ideas flows seamlessly, it’s a very fulfilling experience. To be good at anything we have to practice a lot.
