The magic of writing things down

Sometimes, certain actions seem so simple and cliche that it leads people to overlook the power of these actions to improve their lives.

Writing things that I wanted to accomplish over certain time periods was one of those simple things that moved the needle for me in my career.

Neuroscientists would agree that brain focus is enhanced when your hand and brain are engaged in producing a list of goals to accomplish each day, week or month.

As Brian Tracy writes, “Physically writing down your goals on a piece of paper activates your subconscious mind in a way that will not only help you remember your goals but also help you prioritize them and highlight their importance in your subconscious.”

And it works like magic. Your goals on paper transform your subconscious mind into a hit-seeking missile and before long, you are crossing out those goals from your list as accomplished.

Quiet question. What giant goals are you trying to reach today? Write them down and see the magic happen.
