Learning to be more concise

GET TO THE POINT!

One thing that I grapple a lot with lately, is thinking about how to be more concise.  Often times I find myself wanting to share all the reading and ideas I have been doing lately, but a couple of short paragraphs doesn’t seem to cut it.

The big trade off is that the longer a message gets, the less likely the people who you want to read it, will. Or worse still, they’ll skim over it, and comment bringing up a point that was already in the original article, but buried in a middle paragraph.

I invite you to share some of the challenges you may have had with writing something that you wanted people to read.
