Trust me. Download it. Read it.

For those of you who don’t want to download and read all 40 pages, allow me to very briefly summarize it for you.

Learning to Write is Done by Writing

You learned to walk by walking. Yes you fell down often, but you got up again.

You learned to ride a bicycle by riding a bicycle. Yes you fell down occasionally, but you got up again.

You learned to drive a car by driving a car. Yes you trashed your first car, but…..

When?

The best time to start is 5 years ago (that 10,000 hour thing). The second best time to start is now.
