I’m a fan of Twitter. I love the fact that there is a 140 character limit. It forces me to focus on the meat of what I’m trying to convey and cut out all the unncessary stuff. I have to be concise, which means every character counts to get the thought across.
I’m a fan of Seth Godin’s blog. He shares very short posts every day and it cuts to the core of what he is trying to say. Today’s post was about how to start your first business and it was less than 300 characters. Yet it was concise and the message was communicated well.
I wonder if placing certain constraints on your craft can make you better? I think I’ll try that with writing on this site. Limit the character count and see if I become better at communicating my thoughts.
