Eradicate Fear

"A fearful writer can never be an effective writer"

The reason behind that is because when people are driven by fear they can say anything without thinking about it rationally; they use soft language and lack conviction in their words.

The only way to overcome our fear of failure is to be able to accept full ownership of everything we write, perfect or not, because at the end of the day it will only make us more credible.

Before hitting "send" or "share

... get in the habit of pausing to ask, "Does this piece of writing achieve its purpose?" to avoid miscommunication and inefficiencies.

When you write anything for work, you have a purpose in mind. You want to move the recipient to some action, educate your coworkers about something or maybe just show off your good work.
