Pencil, pen, or keyboard, writing is a powerful resource for us. It helps us with our thinking. It is clarifying, sharpening our focus. It communicates who we are, what we’re discovering and the work we do.
Writing even enhances the capacity and function of the thought process. Stephen Covey says that writing is more powerful than visualization (The 8th Habit). “Writing bridges the conscious and the subconscious mind. Writing is a psycho-neuromuscular activity and literally imprints the brain.”
Here’s a little experiment. Before you go to bed, write 2 or 3 things you want to think about or do when you awake.
Research has shown that simply writing goals releases an empowerment and authority to achieve those goals. Writing enables us to become more self-aware. It can help us to locate where we are and where we need to go.
An author is an originator, a creator. An AUTHOR moves in AUTHORITY. When you get in touch with your desires, dreams, and vision, and then harmonize them with written goals, you increase in authority. You are an author.
Whether we’re consciously in touch with it or not, something is always radiating from us. We are always publishing.

What about the possibility of sharing who you are, what you’re learning and the work you do with others? The message of your life and work wants to be heard. And others are waiting to hear it. Put it to words and write it!
Q4U: What unique messaging wants to come through you? What do you need to share with others?
