Daily Writing #5: How can you become deadly according to Dr. Jordan Peterson?

Dr. Jordan Peterson is a world-renowned psychologist and once you listen to him he is definitely going to impress you with his communication skills.

Now, you don’t have to become a trained assassin or an MMA fighter to become deadly. Although learning how to fight gives you confidence. But I am not talking about that here.

Learning to read, write and speak effectively will make you deadly

Renowned psychologist Dr.Jordan Peterson often espouses this theory. Here’s what he says about this:


This is exactly why I am trying to instill the habit of daily writing in my life.

In order to write clearly first, you need to think clearly. And in order to think clearly, you must first learn to organize your thoughts and structure them properly to present your opinion or arguments to your audience.

And in order to think you also have to start noticing things that yo often ignore in your daily life. From that, you gain ideas on which you then think and then write.

If you can think and write and can construct a logical thought you can convince anyone to do anything for you, like maybe you are pitching to angel investors for some money, or you are convincing your spouse of something, etc. In all these situations you need to be able to think and speak clearly.

If we practice these skills we can become skilled writers, speakers, thinkers.

And that will make us deadly, even more, deadlier than any weapon.

How do you become a better writer, thinker or a speaker?

By making it a habit.

Start reserving some time daily for these skills. Even 30 mins daily are enough. Do not make any target word limit. But just start journaling. Eventually, you will see that after some time you begin to think and write more effectively. You become better as you practice more. The side effect of this daily writing habit is that you begin to notice things in your life. This makes you a better observer too.

I write daily here on my blog. There is no limit to the word count. I am not focusing on any topic here. I want to build a daily writing habit. This is Day 5 of the Daily Writing Challenge in 2022.
