"(Excerpted from the How to Keep a Journal audio series)
If you're serious about becoming a wealthy, powerful, sophisticated, healthy, influential, cultured and unique individual - keep a journal. Don't trust your memory.
When you listen to something valuable, write it down.
When you come across something important, write it down.
I used to take notes on pieces of paper and torn-off corners and backs of old envelopes. I wrote ideas on restaurant placemats. On long sheets, narrow sheets and little sheets and pieces of paper thrown in a drawer.
Then I found out that the best way to organize those ideas is to keep a journal. I've been keeping a journal since the age of twenty-five. The discipline makes up a valuable part of my learning, and the journals are a valuable part of my library.
I am a buyer of blank books. Kids find it interesting that I would buy a blank book. They say, "Twenty-six dollars for a blank book! Why would you pay that?" The reason I pay twenty-six dollars is to challenge myself to find something worth twenty-six dollars to put in there.
All my journals are private, but if you ever got a hold of one of them, you wouldn't have to look very far to discover it is worth more than twenty-six dollars."
