I love to learn—always have. Sometimes the new information or new way to look at something isn’t what I can immediately put to use. Like seeds for next season’s garden, I want to safely store them till the right time. My process is to write in a few notebooks—each notebook for certain types of learnings. Like seed storage, placing the learning seeds in a container. But not too tightly sealed. Seeds in airtight containers can be ruined by trapped moisture. As I learn more, I update previous notes keeping the thoughts open, not trapped. And I can’t begin to list how often I have referenced those seeds of learning to re-plant into my own life or deposit in the life of another.
