One Big Thing You Can Do to Improve Your Business + Life

“Writing doesn’t just communicate ideas; it generates them. If you’re bad at writing and don’t like to do it, you’ll miss out on most of the ideas writing would have generated.” -Paul Graham

Kevin Kelly, founder of Wired magazine, wrote that “the new economy is about communication, deep and wide… Communication is the foundation of society, of our culture, of our humanity, of our individual identity, and of all economic systems.”

To put it simply, you can’t afford not to communicate well.

This Winter, people are heading back to college or taking night classes–all in the name of upping their game, learning new skills, and taking steps to create the life of their dreams.

It’s not always easy. It takes some hustle.

Across all industries, the best way to improve your business (and personal) life is to improve your ability to tell great stories. I teach the Writer’s Workshop specifically because I want people to learn how to improve their creative, storytelling, persuasion, and messaging skills. It’s a power-packed course over four weeks that will give you enough content to affect the next year of your life (and beyond).

We start with imagination, visualization, and unlocking your creative sides. Then, for the left-brained among us, we’ll look at templates, maps, and tools for making essay writing (and blog posts) much easier.

Paul Graham emphasizes the importance of writing as a tool for accessing your own ideas — “If you’re bad at writing,” he says, “you’ll miss out on most of the ideas writing would have generated.”

Improve your career. Improve your relationships. Improve your mind.

“If you want to improve your life, improve your ability to articulate what you think. There’s power in being able to tell your story. It’s the difference between being heard, and being ignored.”

This is the last week to sign up for the Writer’s Workshop–and while all the early bird registration spots have been snagged, there are still a few spaces left in regular enrollment. 

If you want to make positive change in your life but feel stuck, join this course. Invest in yourself–and your growth. You won’t regret it.

PS: In case you missed it, I covered great ways to improve your writing (and common mistakes everyone makes in email communication) over on Fast Company this week. I also shared ten ways to improve your writing and editing skills with Think Traffic in September.

  1. Love the Paul Graham quote. I’ve found that I’m happier, more creative, and more productive when I spend a solid portion of my day writing. I’m a bit fearful for when I don’t write, as I wonder what ideas are slipping away from me that I may have only had a one-time chance to grasp.

    Great post, Sarah! Good luck with this winter’s writer’s workshop!
