If you want to get paid highly for your thinking, then–despite the fact that your mind is thinking every waking moment–you need to practice thinking a lot.
But you need to do so in a structured way. Not the semi-random, reactionary way the mind tends to run on autopilot.
For a while I’ve said “writing has massive future value for consultants”.
I believe this, but I’d probably struggle to explain it if asked. Fortunately, nobody has asked. Folks just kind of nod in agreement when I say this.
But now I have at least one component of an explanation: writing is how you practice thinking.
I suggest you do it in public: theexpertiseincubator.com
