2016-03-29 Benefits from writing

When I started to write here,
the purpose was to become a better writer.
It turns out to have other
unexpected good side-effects:

It adds time for reflection.
When you put thoughts into writing,
you have to think them through in another way.

It preserves thoughts across time,
so you can have a dialog with yourself
another place in time.

A recent post was an example of this.
In the previous months, I have had
consultancy/contracting work,
which collided with my 3-day sprints.
Yesterday when I was writing about
“Hierarkisk tid”, I thought the work structure,
and reread my “3-day sprint” post,
that I linked to. This made me think,
and move the sprints around,
so they fit much better to the work.
