My 2020 Vision: Using the Note Habit


You have a vision for a better life today. You know you want a change but don’t know where to start or how to get there.

Most people can’t articulate their life vision, mission or even what they value. A small percentage of people will have that information organized and rehearsed in their brain. That’s just not how we live from day to day.

There is a direct correlation between writing something down and your ability to do something about it. Most people without a note taking system simply keep stuff in their heads and that’s like having a leaking bucket. A note habit ensures you collect, process and archive what is important to you.

The first habit you need to start is the note collection habit. I started this journey about five years ago and it’s completely changed how I think, believe and see my future. Notes are for everything that you experience in a day.
