|Two weeks into the future is as far as the human mind can apprehend.|
Visualization is the key to success in all our endeavors.
And when I get through the week and we all did our activities and nothing is forgotten, y'all, I feel a sense of satisfaction. Like I've put a puzzle together.
Then, on Sunday night when I wipe the whiteboard for the previous week clean, I record in my paper planner what actually DID happen, i.e., how we deviated from the schedule and what other details I want to include. Things that would actually jog my memory about the actual living of those days.
When I first started this system, one night before I wiped the board off, I carried it to Matt and said, "Before I erase this, I just want you to appreciate it."
I'm crazy, I do know.
But he took it from me and said, "Let me see." Then he made a very good show of studying it, and then he said, "Nicely done. Good job."
Reader, that is all I need to hear. RIGHT?
What is your system? Have you gone to color coding? Do you need an audience for it?
PS: One day Hank wrote one of his appointments on the whiteboard, but he used a sharpie. So, permanent. But I found out you can just write over the sharpie in dry-erase marker, and it renders the sharpie dry-erase. And thus the cause of human knowledge advances.
