Ever since I started practicing the habit, writing daily has opened many doors for me.  A lot of which I have previously discussed at length in here.

However, even though I have started to see results in myself, I feel like I have arrived at a point where my growth is starting to plateau and I need to "pivot" into a new strategy in order to keep myself challenged and growing.

One of the things that I'm experimenting with is taking some of the topics and posts I've made here and write about each one in more depth and with a lot more research included into the process (up to now, my posts have mostly been about my own opinions and experiences, whereas now I'd like to take my writing into a more Authoritative state).

In order to achieve this, I will need to start reading more content (like articles, scholar publications, etc.) to form an educated opinion of the topics I choose to write about.  So I think the challenge will be in figuring out how to incorporate this step with the rest of my existing workflow.

In fact, I'm thinking if this could be part of how I approach my exploration of projects to work on.

I think it could look something like this:  

1.- I think of some topics that interest me and I want to learn more about

2.- Divide the broader area of interest into different sub-topics.

2.- Read about the sub-topic of most interest until I feel I have a deep enough understanding of the topic.

3.- Write about what I learned using my blog at 200WAD.  This will allow me to cement the concepts I have learned and teach them to others that may find them useful.

4.- Repeat process with the next sub-topic.

5.- Once enough material has been gathered in different posts, write a unifying article to tie it all together and wrap up the project.

    @carlosbeas Great approach! I do the same :) Except part 5 is done on the personal blog I'm currently building.
