Now I can’t say it any better than this post from Mind Power News “Your secret weapon to unlimited wealth”
The real juice starts about half way down with these gems:
Aristotle Onasis, legendary Greek shipping tycoon, (he at one time owned over 200 companies) said:
“Always carry a notebook. Write everything down. When you have an idea, write it down. When you meet someone new, write down everything you know about them. That way you will know how much time they are worth. When you hear something interesting, write it down. Writing it down will make you act upon it. If you don’t write it down you will forget it. THAT is a million dollar lesson they don’t teach you in business school!”
Sir Richard Branson, English billionaire best known for his Virgin brand, prefers to conduct his business the same way he’s done it since the beginning; by writing all of his ideas in a notebook.
“I can’t believe when I see people not writing things down. You know they’re not going to remember everything.”
Branson now has a collection of over 125 black ledger notebooks that he’s written in over the years.”
And anybody who has listened to Tony Robbins knows that he is a massive advocate of journalling and recording your ideas and using these to create a road map of where you want to go. It’s one of the surest ways to get there…
So go find yourselves a journal, it can be as pretty, as silly, as old, as special as you like – and write write write. I keep little books and scrap papers everywhere, including in the car and beside the bed…you just never know when that idea will strike and with our busy little minds always ticking over and making connections you just might get caught out and let that idea slip by unnoticed…and at what loss to the world? We will never know….
