Quote of the day: Breaking the chains of PowerPoint and actually learning to write
A look at why learning how to write is crucial to success.
“By the time I finished up as a company commander, I was very proficient at PowerPoint. I could put together a spectacular briefing liking myself to a PowerPoint Da Vinci, however I couldn’t write. The year before ILE, it took me four months to write a 1600 word article, and that was with two people helping me edit! Even though writing was painful at first, I kept at it, writing multiple blog posts, articles, as well as helping others edit their articles. All that practice helped me relearn a lot about writing, which in turn, better prepared me for the steep writing requirements of the curriculum” [at the Naval War College].
