As a knowledge worker, one of the best skills you can have is the ability to:
- Synthesize a lot of information and extract out what is relevant to you.
- Explain information to people in a way that they understand.
I want to get better at this task. To that end, I plan to write a post every day for the next 21 days. In this post I will try to explain a topic to someone who has had no exposure to the subject matter. Ideally it will be like explaining something to a five year old.
The topics will be based on what I am learning at the time or if I think of something interesting to write about.
During this time I will most likely find certain weaknesses in this skill. I will do my best to counteract these weaknesses and improve the quality of my output over time.
This blog will then form the basis of a regular blog I will write and hopefully gain a following of people who are interested in my work. People I can help and who can help me improve my understanding of the world and be the best at the skills we need to acquire.
