Never be afraid to throw away all your ideas and start again with a blank page #HoskWisdomEither write something worth reading or do something worth writing. Benjamin Franklin
Tasked with creating the social media strategy for the Capgemini Dynamics team, it has got me back into the habit of writing. I have created a Capgemini Dynamics publication (https://medium.com/capgemini-dynamics-365-team) on Medium and share the good practices and great work the team are doing. It will include other team members contributing posts as well my writing
This prompted me to write on my blog – Why developers should read books, I enjoy thinking and writing (publishing your best thoughts). Writing is a tool for teaching yourself and extracting knowledge from experience through reflection.

Why wait for tomorrow, when you can start today #HoskWisdom
I have been busy with project work, thinking and reading that I neglected to write, I got out of the habit. Everyone is busy making excuses, to explain why they aren’t doing what they really want to be doing, you have to admit it and change.
It doesn’t feel I stopped writing blogs because there are tons of notepads and Evernote pages full of half-written blog posts. Writing clarifies thought and helps you understand your approach to problems.
I enjoy the writing process because thinking about a subjects helps you understand. Many thoughts don’t make the finished post because one thought leads to another. The quality of thought and understanding grows with each thought. At the end you step back and view all your ideas and take the best bits and organise them into an interesting structure before sharing it with the world.
I’m going to extreme 365 in Dubrovnik because of my blog, another reason I’m thankful to my blog.
Older blog posts are thoughts, experiences, challenges and problems I experienced, there are over 1000 posts and I can’t remember most of them but I don’t need to because I can go back and read them. I view the blog as a storing my thoughts and knowledge in the cloud with the benefit of being searchable by myself and others.
