Writing is the process of understanding your own thoughts. Lifestyle entrepreneur, investor, and New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss calls it “freeze thinking.” It’s the action of seeing yourself in real time. They say hindsight vision is 20/20. Why learn something in a year when you could learn it today? I believe that seeing-your-own-thoughts-vision is 20/20. You will either find that you’re incredibly cooler, infinitely wiser, and more capable than you thought; or you’ll find that you’re on a completely crazy base, in another galaxy, and re-evaluate yourself; and sometimes you will find yourself somewhere in the middle. The most important truth is that in all three outcomes, you will learn and grow, and that, Freebird, is the whole point of writing.

- Write about your favorite person. From name, to how you feel when you're around them, to what makes them laugh and why they are who they are. Write until a perfect stranger could see them clearly through your lens
