Writing vs Typing: Which is the Best for Your Desired Results?

Writing vs Typing: Which is the Best for Your Desired Results?

When Should You Think About Writing vs Typing?

Ask me several months ago to decide between writing and typing. I would have certainly concluded that typing, digitalised information etc is far better. Nevertheless, I’ve found that this is not always the case…

Organising your life can be difficult when you have a shortage of a clear, definitive, step-by-step plan. Accordingly, a lot of organisational aspects, such as the question of writing vs typing, are up to you.

Writing vs typing: an idea on a sticky note pinned to a noticeboard

Above all, getting ideas out of your head is ridiculously important to help clarify and organise your life. But how do you do this?

In today’s day and age, the two most obvious forms of media are:

  • Pen and paper
  • Digital storage

Boil that down further, you subsequently reach the decision between two methods of expressing information:

  • Write stuff down by hand, or
  • Type, with a keyboard, words into a digital device, for example, your desktop computer or smartphone.

So, which method is better? I hate to say that this depends heavily on your objective as well as your preferences.

My 3 Miracle Secrets to Absorb Knowledge [Super Quickly!]

My 3 Miracle Secrets to Absorb Knowledge [Super Quickly!]

Why Should You Be in the Hot Pursuit of Knowledge?

The successful person is always learning—always absorbing knowledge.

Fact-machine. This would have described a mere school-age boy back in the day, and what a title it was! Above all else, this boy knew exactly how to absorb knowledge at an exceedingly alarming rate.

For instance, he read books ceaselessly like an unstoppable choo-choo train. Not just that, but he was able to retain the extensive vaults of knowledge encapsulated within them.

The child—whose mind bulged with raw information—has, in all likelihood, read more books than you will ever read. And that’s solely in his childhood. If you think you’re shaking your head at this, would you like a bet, m8?

All right, then see if you can match yourself up to these juicy facts:

  • He read all the books in his neighbourhood library
  • He read all the books in his school’s library
  • Finding himself exhausted of information-yielding material, he subsequently went on to absorb the knowledge of two entire encyclopaedias.

“I started to read the Encyclopaedia Britannica. That was so helpful.”

— Elon Musk

While the young learner evidently struggled to make friends, you could imagine the great feats he went on to accomplish. In fact, don’t just imagine them—look at them yourself!

The boy’s name was Elon Musk. Indeed, this immensely successful figure is the same person as the previously discussed book-hungry sponge.

How did he get to where he is? An inextinguishable flame, confident in posture, burned strong within him; his sheer determination to absorb knowledge fast and effectively in order to achieve his goals.

This, in my opinion, demonstrates the power of knowledge and learning perfectly.

So, when are you going to start achieving great things?
