Pen to Paper-1

Habakkuk 2:2 “And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by.” (AMP)
We just finished a series on planning but I’ll love you to know that even though planning takes place in your head, it wil, amount to nothing without proper documentation. I have cultivated the habit of moving round with writing materials or at worst I use my phone’s notepad. As you move round, God can give you inspirations or you suddenly have fresh ideas on modifications you can make on your plan to make it better. If you don’t pen it down, you will likely forget.
A great man said, “The shortest pencil is better than the longest memory.” I know you have a wonderful brain but the brain do forget! It’s an in-built mechanism, if you can’t forget you won’t live long! The reason is because if you can’t forget, you’ll always feel the pain of a hurt the same way it felt when it occured. Can you imagine breaking your hand at age 3 and now you’re 30 and the pain is still fresh in your memory? Probably you’ll have been crying for about 27years! So, your brain can forget and do forget! We have to be grateful for that, you know? The challenge most times however is that it can forget an important stuff as well, that’s why you need to put pen-to-paper.
I once read an article, let me share it with you: In 1948, graduating students of YALE University were told to write down their plans. Only 3% wrote it down in a definite concise manner, 10% scrambled it down, while 87% wrote nothing down. In 1973, 25years later, they went to check on them and discovered that the 3% that wrote down their plans have achieved between 50-100% of their plans over and over again as compared to the 10% that scrambled it down. The remaining 87% were nowhere to be found! (To be continued)
