Learning how to learn / Communication

Learning how to learn, a MOOC by Coursera. I wish I went through such a course earlier. At least I used some of those techniques subconsciously.

One of the optional interviews gave me a deep impression. The one with the writer, who emphasizes on using objects instead of ideas in writing. He also talked about using short sentences and using more active verbs. Being clear instead of being impressive. Because being clear is impressive. Very good stuff.

After working for a while, I now know how important communication is. I knew it was important, but it wasn't important enough for me to focus too much on it. I will put more effort into it. First, I will upgrade the tools needed -- writing and speaking clearly. Second, I will practise on dealing with people. I do wish I could work in a silo, but c'est la vie.
