When it comes to the sustainability factor, we mean that what you learn with us, are life tools that you can and should use in your future tasks, assignments etc. Once you learn it, you need to practice it (that is your part and it is important) and ultimately these tools will become your ownership, therefore you are going to gradually need us less and hopefully not at all in the future. When that happens, it means that you will have mastered those means necessary for your academic success and subsequently you will have secured your peace of mind, which is what everyone has been striving to attain nowadays! This applies to everyone, even teachers; when learning something new, we put into practice and rehearse it constantly.
Writing skillfully is an ongoing process where everyone can improve, regardless of age, sex, academic background etc. It is also the main means through which you shape and influence (positively or negatively) others in all types of disciplines. Here are some notable writers / “influencers”:
Example 1: Emile Zola’s with his famous speech “I accuse” saved the life of a wrongfully accused soldier and changed the mentality of generations in France and beyond with regards to politics, religious tolerance and equal rights.
Example 2: Henrik Ibsen, the Norwegian playwright revolutionised the way we perceive ethics and feminism in literature and in theatre on a global scale. [I actually did a bit of Ibsen at Uni and I had a passionate drama teacher who turned something potentially super boring to something groovy and interesting]. (influence 3)
Example 3: Mick Jagger, the Rolling Stones frontman who has been writing songs and lyrics for the past 7 decades with constant global success and fame.
Example 4: Adam Smith, the British economist laid the foundations for modern economic theory upon which current markets operate.
Example 5: Charles Darwin coined the “survival of the fittest” and analysed human evolution and species’ adaptation which paved the way for future scientific breakthroughs.
These individuals were not born writers; they put a lot of effort in their writing and research and ultimately achieved greatness.
Sooner or later you are going to need to write a cover letter in order to land a job. Another very common practice during the interview process is the preparation and delivery of a presentation to the recruiter. Within a context of several individuals applying for the same post, the recruiter will not spend more than a few seconds reading your letter unless it is immaculately prepared. Such letters and presentations determine your future and even your career at some point in your life. It is therefore essential you be ready for when that time comes. In addition, improved writing will eventually contribute to your speaking, reading and listening skills and vice versa, as these skills are inter-connected/developed.
