Writing and reading are unique skills among humans, and they can be considered the most vigorous exercise of thinking, an exercise that can help us live more creatively, more prosperously, and with deeper wisdom than we could without them. It requires the development of complex problem solving skills that remain viable and useful when transferred to a number of career paths and also in our daily lives.
