I realize when I get stuck I tend to go after anything and everything to help me. Usually that means a book or a course. The more expensive or a little out of reach, the better.
But maybe a free walk will be what’s most helpful for me. Morgan Housel, a great writer, recently said in an interview about how he takes 2-3 walks a day. It’s when he does the real work.
Malcolm Gladwell also talks about how writing is the easy part. It’s the thinking, researching, and reporting that’s the hardest.
I romanticize sitting at a desk pounding at the keyboard, and my head at the desk trying to write. But the best way to write, it seems, is to live life and then reflect on it through words.
