Just write!

This is an unstructured post. For the past few weeks, I have been able to discipline myself and just writing.


Writing makes a lot of things more apparent. It helps to focus. I have forced myself to unshackle from the constraints of modern technology. To shut down the constant din of notifications. To be better off than being distracted.

As usual, the continuous improvement in making Twitter work for me has helped. I invested a lot of time to make automation work. This has resulted in much cleaner timeline, a much better opportunity to follow colleagues, to find out what is being discussed and participate in more meaningful online discourse.

Writing is prompted by slow thinking as well.

For all academics out there. Just write. The dividends are very rewarding indeed.
