We all want to accomplish something in this world. Big or small, I’m certain we all have wishlists of things we’d like to do before we die. You can see some of mine in the problems I’d like to see solved as detailed in yesterday’s post. But if you never write it down, you’ll never have a clear idea of WHAT it is that you’re trying to accomplish. They’ll merely be intangible thoughts that could blow away in the wind as soon as your attention is directed elsewhere. So commit your plans to paper!
As soon as you put things down in written form, it gives them power. It makes them THAT much more real. And perhaps you’ll forget about it – it happens all of the time. But when you REDISCOVER the note to yourself, you’ll rethink it, applying additional experience and knowledge to an idea that may have formerly been incomplete!
It’s almost as if you’re making a little promise to yourself that you’ll give the idea a chance to make its way from a scribble on paper to what it’s meant to be in reality. So next time an idea pops into your cranium, don’t just ignore it. Scribble it down – have pads by your bed, by your shower and in your pocket just in case! You never know which idea might be the one that changes your life!
