If you don’t write it down it never happened. Yet most of us are utterly apathetic to writing.

We don’t even make conscious choices to not write. We have a default position of not writing.

We believe that our goals, ideas and experiences will be preserved by memory. We believe that memory will give an accurate picture. We believe that we can always come up with the original idea later; when it’s needed.

Let me tell you something you already know. Things didn’t happen the way you remember them. You’ve forgotten thousands of original ideas. You’ve got goals you can’t remember.

What price will you pay for forgetfulness?

I could tell you that the single common habit of successful people is to keep a note book with them to record ideas, develop plans and measure their progress.

Would that make you more of a writer?
