Do you recall the days when people used to keep a diary of their thoughts? We all remember the popular TV series Secret Diary of Adrian Mole back in the 80’s.
I have never kept a diary however following a recent interview where I was subjected to a grilling which required me to recall “critical and relevant” past events to prove my worth, I started thinking. I sat in that room, overlooking the shrubs, the trees and the water feature thinking, it might have helped if I jotted these incidents down.
Now I am not talking about keeping a detailed list of each and every occurrence in your daily life, but it’s prudent to keep a note of a situation you may have dealt with, or a personal observation, all these things will help you when you search through the memory archives.
Did I follow-up my own advice? Of course, in actual fact I go a little against it as I do spend 5 minutes a day jotting something [meaningful] down.
