You never know what interesting things will come to you via e-mail, Facebook, web surfing, you tube etc. I’m the person who has every intention of remembering something – but when it comes to actually recalling the specifics, my mind goes blank.
Now I keep a spiral notebook on my computer desk and every time I come across something I want to remember I put it in my book – quotes, web sites that I don’t want to bookmark but I want to remember some day, names of artists I want to “google” some time, – the list is endless. Since I’ve started this practice, I have been very happy with the result – Anything I’ve found interesting from the internet is in my notebook. Occasionally I’ll go through it and re-discover things that I’ve neglected to remember and that I want to explore further.
p.s. – If you use a cell phone or an iPad to explore the web when you are away from your computer, keep colored “stickies” in your pocket or purse. Then when you want to note something write it on a stickie and later stick it in the notebook for future reference.
