When I started writing again I had all of these ideas that I wanted to get down but I only sit to write once a day so I needed to remember everything else. Historically speaking I have not had the best memory so I’ve implemented a whole slew of ways of reminding myself. I have digitally to-do list apps, notebooks strewn al over the place and even an entire wall of my office that is a chalk board.
Do you know what all of those things have in common? I rarely utilize them to remember things.
For me it’s less about remembering what I wanted to do and more about remember to put the processes in place that will enable me to be the most efficient. Self-awareness is a great thing but you still need to act upon things for there to be change.
So this post is another gentle reminder to myself to create the process, actually utilize the process, modify the process if necessary and then trust that the process will work.
