Capture Ideas Before they Escape

Anyone who cares about the preservation of ideas should capture them before they escpape. It’s like the way people are supposed to remember their dreams, that is, how they have to record them in order to revisit them later. But how many people really enjoy recording dreams? The experience of remembering one or two good, or bad dreams, forces us to records them in the journal of our memory. But ideas are different. Writers of many documents rely on ideas; we are often rated based on the originality of our, although this might be considered oxymoronic by some. If there is no systematic recording of some of the most important ideas that come to you, chances are you might end up in the pile of bandwagonish ideas, so we end up sounding all alike, like our ways of idea-production come from the same template.

Welcome, everbody to my new blog. Here I am going to be a bit playful; I want people to join in the discussions that will occur here. I am going to look for interesting topics on the web and elsewhere. Some topics I will take seriously, like the one that I read in Time magazine today about, let’s see, about how OCD is a sign of madness, something of that nature, or how every brain is just a few inches away from madness. The writer went on to argue that doubt yourself if you are in the habit of checking if your doors are locked – checking them two to three times, just to make sure. Oh, they were talking about depression, some deadly condition that can be diagnosed clinically and is treatable (was this the problem?). They were saying there are new improvements in the phychiatry field of utilizing some genetic study to find ways of easing the treament of the condition. Some serious breakthrough, and so on…

Sometimes I just prefer browsing Physchology today which offers indepth coverage of topics like who talks too much, men or women. In a recent issue I think they were say it’s fifty-fifty, or that women use 500 more words, which they discounted because it’s such an insignificant difference. As far as they are concerned, it’s blah blah blah all the way, whether you are woman or a man. You see, such coverage, such depth, such rigor (same thing), that’s what I get out of a specialized magazine. Time is still okay.

But seriously, good writing comes from the careful recording of all ideas, so that when writing time comes, then you know you will choose the best of the best. Ideas, grow ideas like vegetables, tend to them, let them become leafy, rich, collard-greenish.
