Why should you, or anyone for that matter, spend time on this blog? Good question. The simple answer is, I write because I love it, and I think I’ve got something worth sharing.
The Essence of Writing
For me, writing isn’t just a hobby; it’s a form of communication and connection. It allows me to crystallize my thoughts, gaining insights that were initially fuzzy or elusive. Every time I revisit a piece I’ve written, I find both room for improvement and a deep sense of satisfaction.
Why the Focus on Thoughts?
You’ve probably heard that we have 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts a day—a figure often tossed around but rarely examined. Whether or not that number is accurate, our minds are undoubtedly bustling hubs of activity. With so many thoughts and limited cognitive capacity—ever heard of Miller’s Law, which proposes we can only really hold about seven items in our working memory at a time?—it’s no wonder writing and reading about thoughts is so compelling.
Why Do Anything At All?
In a world brimming with possibilities, why choose to read this blog—or do anything else, for that matter? Because you want to. It’s as simple as that. If you find my writing resonates with you, even for just a few minutes, then I’ve achieved my goal.
My Lifelong Quest
Through relentless journaling, blogging, and studying Philosophy and Communication, I’ve pursued the seemingly impossible task of making sense of my thoughts. My goal is to not only make sense of them for myself but also for you, my readers.
