Necessarily Brief

Seth Godin publishes a blog post every single day and has for many years. He claims that this practice helps him to be a better observer of the world around him and that it helps him to organize and clarify his thoughts. His blog posts vary greatly in length, from only a few sentences to multiple pages long. In an interview, he was asked how he determined the length of a particular blog post. How did he know that he had written all that needed to be said about that subject in that moment? His reply was something like, “Each post should be as short as possible, but no shorter.”
