Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.

Dots or points?

Dots are small circular shapes. Points are mathematical entities without dimension.

In networks, you connect what exists, dots. But you can dream and foresee what could exist, points.

The challenge could be how can we convert an idea (point) into reality (dot). But the true challenge is going to be how can you connect the dot to the network.

Nonetheless, I think we learn and evolve the most when we can make an entirely new network our of an unthinkable dot.

With all the noise in the world, it’s going to be hard finding new points to shape our reality. Lowering this noise might imply stop staring at your screen reading this post, look around and give yourself time to wonder.
