What Paras Chopra taught me
Sorry for the slightly click-bait-y title.
This story started a few months ago with this tweet -
I asked the following question on our Inverted Passion slack group.
Inverted Passion is a community created by Paras Chopra. The slack channel is usually buzzing with the questions, mentioned in the tweet above. I also like reading the mental models shared by Paras, have been reading them for more than a couple of years I think.
Writing is thinking.
This message is my phone wallpaper.
Paras’s message went like a flashbulb in my brain. I knew I think better when I write. But Writing was never a deliberate practice for me to improve my professional skills.
Now, I am trying to start my days with a daily note dump. This is to kick-start the writing process for the day. I write about my tasks, my motivation levels or some new thing I’ve discovered.
As the day progresses, whenever I have to make a decision, I write. Whenever I am preparing for a meeting or thinking about a product feature. I try to put it on paper.
Useful app suggestion: Obsidian (for unstructured note-taking).
