Do you get it?

Do you get it?

“The quality of your life is a direct reflection of the quality of communication with yourself and others”

David Alan Binder

Dear Readers and Dear Writers,

So, when I ask you, “Do you get it?” I am asking you a question that will reflect the quality of your communication with yourself.

“It is just as important to not only ask questions, but to listen to the answer."

David Alan Binder

Now I am asking you again, “Do you get it?”  You should answer, “Get what?” unless you are clairvoyant.  The “IT” in this case is “Writing”.

If you get writing then you, understand that it is not only a purpose, a compulsion; it is also a commitment, to yourself only.

No one else in the world cares if you write.  So, you have to care.

No one else in the world may read what you write.  So, you have to read it.

No one else in the world will be impacted by your writing, until they care enough to “get it”.  Sometimes they will not “Get it” until after you die.  That does not matter.

The computer or phone screen in front of you is not a window onto the world.  It is a tool.

The keyboard in front of you is directed by you, controlled by you, manipulated by you and only you.

How do you use your time?  Keep a log and write it out for a week.  Every minute you spend texting counts, every minute you spend on Facebook or whatever social media you are using counts.

“Every minute counts and you should be counting your minutes.”

David Alan Binder

Take all those wasted minutes and use them productively.

Write, Dear Writer and Dear Reader, write.

I am here to help you and you are here to help me.  Let’s help each other.

Yours, David Alan Binder
