I had a flash of brilliance this morning

A Bullet Journal Index Page

I had a flash of brilliance this morning.

I had an idea I felt was worth sharing, a little tid-bit – a nugget – that seemed worth fleshing out. I could write it up as a Facebook status, but felt that a blog post might be a better place. I wanted to get back into regular blogging anyhow. Then I promptly forgot it.

Two thoughts:

  1. I should have written it down. Thanks to Rocky‘s insistence over the years I do keep a Bullet Journal. There’s no reason I didn’t log it there. Silly mistake. But…
  2. It’s not the end of the world.

We all get flashes of brilliance, those insights that are so different than what we’ve had before. They are synthesizing moments, or breakthrough moments. Whatever they are, they’re fleeting and rare.

But it’s not the end of the world to forget one. It’s really not. I’ll have other flashes of brilliance, and so will you. We just have to remember to write them down next time.

Once, I had a flash of brilliance I didn’t forget to write down. It turned into a little book.
