Four Reasons Why You Need To Write Your Ideas and Goals Down
With social media platforms, such as Twitter and Instagram, journaling may seem old-fashioned. However, research shows that writing your thoughts down is beneficial in many ways. Here are four reasons why you need to commit to noting your ideas and goals.
It will help you remember your thoughts.
Your memory isn’t the most reliable thing, especially as you get older. Writing thoughts and goals will place them in your mental archive. Capture them while you can!
It helps you get your ideas clear.
Writing thoughts down forces you to clarify what you really need. If you are upset, writing out your anger not only relieves your stress, but it helps you think rationally about why you are upset. If you are writing down your goals, it will help you articulate what exactly you are seeking to achieve.
It will give you better focus and motivation.
Written goals and ideas can serve as powerful reminders that will keep you on the right track. Whether you journal or set goals, writing your thoughts will give you the direction and clarity to help you achieve your goals!
It will help you visualize and celebrate your progress.
People often say that “abstract goals turn into concrete work”, and it is very true! Writing while you’re goal-setting will help you see what needs to be done to reach your goal and what your life will look like when you reach it. Also, you will be able to look back on your written goals as mile-markers and think about how far you have gotten.
Definitely consider writing your goals and ideas down when you are planning for 2020. Your thoughts may come and go, but your written words are long-lasting. Interested in learning more about our historic Pride? Check out our Story!
