Courage Igene is a successful author with many publications based on his thoughts, research, and experiences.
Although Courage has found great success in his writing career, it did not always come easy. However, once Courage Igene developed effective writing habits, he found that writing was a useful tool not only for his professional career but also for his every day life.
Writing is something the majority of us do without even thinking about it whether noting down a friends phone number, a memo at work to pass to another colleague or just writing about your day in your diary. Writing can be good for you in many ways and help you to create memories that you can rely on. It can take a while for certain bits of information to soak in for example if you are in a lecture or learning something else new. Writing is a fast and simple way to retain the information until later when you need to refresh your memory.
Everything from lists for shopping, what you need to take on holiday or your tasks for the day can be written down while fresh in your mind and then referred to when you need a refresh later. Having things written down clearly will stop you forgetting a task that was clear in your mind yesterday.
Down below, Courage Igene briefly describes some of the ways in which writing can be an effective and beneficial part of your day.
Note down your goals
When you have a long list of goals in your mind it’s not always easy to remember the rest when you have completed the first. By writing them down you can not only use them as a reference to know what to do next, but also to show yourself how much you have achieved and what you have left until your goal list is complete. When you are feeling down on a task you can use your list to look back and gain extra incentive by looking at those already achieved to give you more determination for the next.
How often have you asked for a person’s details thinking that you are able to remember them, then kicking yourself at a later date for not writing them down? By getting in the habit of writing down contact information you won’t feel the frustration at having not remembered the important details. It could be the case you don’t need them till a later date, however your memory may not be as good as you think. Courage Igene is always sure to write down the contact information of people he meets on his missionary trips or while on tour.
Sometimes while we’re in the car, walking down the street, in the shower, or laying in bed we come across a unique and interesting thought that we want to pursue later. Just as it is easy to forget what we dream about just hours after we’ve woken up, it is easy to forget about these important thoughts we had. Because of this, it is important to write down these thoughts as soon as we get a chance so that we can go back and develop them further when we have time. Courage Igene writes down his thoughts as much as possible and uses them often in his public speaking events.
We may rely on technology a lot in this day and age, but what happens when things go wrong? Writing things down is something you don’t need internet access or battery power for. You can do it anywhere at any time and is a useful way of making sure you have information when you need it most.
