Great post, DK! Something special happens when we collect our thoughts for and against an idea in a written list. It reminds me a little or the Amazonian approach to making business decisions. Each meeting begins with a written statement of the problem, the business impact, and potential directions forward. It’s a process that works just as well for personal and professional decisions.

Great example. Written communication is wonderful for articulating thoughts and getting review, feedback, and buy-in from other people!

Additionally, in business situations the writer of a document has outsized influence over the assumptions and direction of the conversation. Worthwhile skill to hone!
