The effect of writing everyday
I have been reaching out and writing to people who either work in the company I desire or someone from the university I wanna pursue my Masters. While writing to the first two people, I was nervous had so many thoughts clogged up in my mind. An endless list of questions that were holding me from writing it actually.
How are they gonna react? Will they ever write back?
The answer is I don’t know. But I kept writing and still doing so. I had a concoct mindset about how people would react (negative). At times I read my text back and forth to make sure if that makes sense at all.
As the days pass by, I started to get replies the greatest thing was those replies were pleasing and helpful. Great feedback and a lot of learning started to happen. People were so kind and generous to answer every bit of the question that I have asked them.
Then I started to write to more people about my interest, sometimes ask them what are the skills they expect in an Intern, how’s the placement in that university, and so on. It’s more became like a toss of a coin or to make this appropriate like a lottery. Some of my texts were answered but most of them got ignored.
Through the process, I learned how to write to someone that they won’t ignore. That means people who are really interested in reading those texts. Well, that was because I wrote to almost 10 people’s before but none replied, but then realized my mistakes.
All right What I am trying to convey here?
You never know what happens, worst or it even turns out to be positive. The goal should be about the 0.001% progress you make for every step you keep ahead.
Somewhere without my knowledge, my writing skills got better with time, writing every day a blog seems like a headache at times. But the hidden benefit is unseen by me, even couldn’t recognize it’s all because I am writing for 140 days and still running.
Thanks to the people who replied to me and helped me with my queries. Special thanks to the people who didn’t reply, if it wasn’t for you people I wouldn’t have made progress.
