It’s Obama’s second time as President of the US and the second to be picked “Person of the Year” by Time Magazine. Here is an interview where Obama explains why writing is important.
Time: What’s the purpose of the diary?
Obama: Well, I don’t have as much time to write as I used to, but in my life, writing has been an important exercise to clarify what I believe, what I see, what I care about, what my deepest value are, that there’s – that the process of converting a jumble of thoughts into coherent sentences makes you ask tougher questions.
Enough said. Now go and write.
