Write it down(DW# 837)

As we have been discussing, Ben Franklin had written out in detail what he wanted to achieve and grow within himself.

He was onto something.

 Researchers have found again and again that those who write down their goals are much more likely to achieve them (between 1.2 and 1.4 times more likely!)

 Writing down goals (rather than trying to commit them to memory)  has immense power because:

1)   Once goals are externalized and written down, they act as visual cues, they can be reviewed and accessed at any time (even if your brain is distracted by other things).
2)   if you just THINK about one of your goals or dreams, you’re only using the right hemisphere of your brain, which is your imaginative centre.

On the other hand, if you think about something you want to achieve, and then write it down, you also tap into the power of your logic-based left hemisphere.

 3)   By involving both hemispheres of the brain, the process of writing down our goals essentially opens your subconscious to "seeing" opportunities that simply cannot be observed if you’re tied up with THINKING about your goals.

This shifts what you tend to focus on throughout your day, including your awareness about opportunities that are right in front of you, but that often can’t be seen if you’re just casually thinking about or dreaming about what you want to achieve.

4) The process of writing down helps your brain sort information and focus on what is truly important.

5) It is easier to store things in our long term memory which we have generated ourselves. When we write down anything, including our goals, it improves the encoding process into long term memory.
