Thoughts and ideas are like water flowing downstream. If you do not take steps to preserve them, they are gone: leaving no trace.

I have met many people who have wonderful bright ideas, but fail to write them down. Sometimes this is because they feel that the idea or thought is so impressive that they cannot forget it. Other times they feel that no one will think their thought or idea worthy of consideration. still others have so many ideas crowding around in their heads that by the time they find a writing implement, all they can remember is the latest idea.

Please write down your thoughts and ideas, even if you do not think them all that impressive. Not all ideas, on first review, are that impressive. Sometimes they have to be stored or put away and reviewed later. Sometimes thoughts need airing in front of an inventive and innovative person (we all know someone like that), a person who has the ability to see possibilities.
