I’m trying to get in the habit of reading and writing on a daily basis. I’m also a visual thinker. I internalize the stuff I read and write better by putting it in pictures be it a powerpoint slide, flowchart, graph, illustration, or simply scribbling in a notebook. Hence a new habit or routine is starting to take hold:
Case is point, my most recent weekend read was The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I loved this book. Maybe because the message was so simple. Maybe because in this day and age it’s so applicable. Probably because it struck a personal chord and I felt compelled enough to render a visual reminder that sits on my desk at home.
