Make A Note of That
I take my Filofax to the beach and pool. I keep it safely in my tote bag (as a lot of you know I don’t keep notes or calendar dates electronically and, hence, am faster than everyone else). I do this because I’ve had great ideas staring at the ocean or sky or birds and I lose them quickly if I don’t write them down immediately. I’ve even written on the pages of the current book I’m reading. (This isn’t a sign of age, I’ve always been able to remember historic details readily but not what I had for lunch yesterday,)
If the idea I’ve jotted down still resonates with me the next day, I put it into action immediately (writing, recording, new offering, etc.). If not, I cross it out.
It’s rumored that 2,000 years or so ago, a Roman guard relaxing under a tree figured out the mysteries of the universe. He fell asleep, and when awakened by his superior, had forgotten everything.
