In favor of brevity

Date: 2019-08-27

The point of communication is to transfer information. Anything else is fluff.

Fluff is important to identiy and remove as its presence means worse value / time. Time is one of the most important resources we have. Thus we want to maximize its utility.

brevity pros

  • less time spent reading
  • less time spent writing
  • more clear / focused

brevity cons

  • brash / terse style
  • less fleshed out ideas

When less word do more good, use less word.
