Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! Happy December! Here’s your tip:

Problem solve out loud.

This tip was inspired by this piece from Siderea, author of excellent, insightful essays. If you like it, consider supporting her on Patreon — I do.

When you’re trying to work something out, work through it out loud. I often talk to myself, or these days, to Albert A. Cat (he’s a great listener), when I’m trying to figure out a problem or a plan. You might see your issue from another perspective or realize the solution when you’re trying to explain it to yourself or someone else (or your cat) in a way you can’t when you’re just mulling it over in your head.
