By putting into writing the steps that you have planned, you will easily see what works and what doesn't. There is something magical in identifying a problem as soon as you start writing it out, you start working out ways to make things work. The fact that it is now all on paper actually creates a space between you and the problem. And in this space that you have created, new solutions have room to grow. You see, writing about events that occur helps you to understand and process exactly what is happening in your life. When you describe your life to yourself only in your mind, your imagination tends to feed back false information about how things really are. You may be working with distorted information. If you keep your life information just in your mind, your creativity can create scenarios that really don't exist at all. But by writing it all down, you now can become more factual, more realistic, more logical. Then as you reread what you have written, you create new pictures in your mind. Once you see things as they are, rather than how you think they are, you can see how to make them better. It is all part of being responsible. It is all part of seeing things objectively to fully understand the steps that you must take to make things better, to better prepare yourself for the opportunities that lie ahead.
