“Paper is to write things down that we need to remember. Our brains are used to think.” Albert Einstein
My husband is always reminding me to write things down. I tend to have millions ideas and thoughts running through my head continuously. Sometimes I can’t sleep because I am so excited about the things that are going through my head.
My husband told me that he heard a story about Albert Einstein and how he would write everything down. Anything that came to mind he would write down. He had many journals of thoughts and ideas that he kept record of. He did even memorize his phone number, if he needed it he knew where he wrote it down and he could look it up.
Why did he do this?
Because when you write down all the things that are running through your mind it opens your mind to new ideas and thoughts!
No wonder Einstein is known as a brilliant man!
So this is my new mission, I want to keep my mind open to new ideas and thoughts. I want to have the space to be creative and to give time and energy to the things in life that matter, not what I perceive as demanding my time.
