This is the reason why I can’t be totally like Andy Matuschak, who prioritizes insight over everything else. Although insight is important, equally important to me is self-expression. And there is no better way to get better at self-expression than practicing it as often as I can, preferably in a regular basis, ideally daily.
I am a writer with a strong research foundation. That’s two things in one. Both writing and research deserves enough attention.
