Blogging makes you more productive

Surely not, I hear you say. All that time taken up in writing the blog must reduce personal productivity!

Most bloggers work in one or both of two ways .. they blog things which 'happen' (easy) or they reflect on issues, concerns, activities, etc and think about lessons that emerge (more difficult). After a time, however, these 'lessons' present themselves more quickly - as your mind becomes attuned to the type of things you are looking for. And this process of consideration and reflection spills over to other activities. Soon, you find yourself finding 'insights' from unexpected sources.

'Thinking' becomes second nature - instead of a chore ... and thought processes improve.

Well, that's my experience ... if you read this stuff on a regular basis, you might have a view as to whether I'm right.
