Finding ways to improve scientific writing and academic productivity.


In a recent post, Seth Godin writes about writing and says something interesting

“ writing is the symptom of thinking.”

The reason for this link between writing and thinking is related to something he says earlier in the post,

“ Writing is organized thinking on behalf of persuasion.”

It resonated, but we can go deeper and wonder if thinking is the symptom of vision.

When an idea comes to mind, it’s an expression of an in-sight, meaning the sight you have inside. The vision of the whole.

Envisioning is the inner act of deep thinking.
