A big part of GTD is writing everything down. The idea is that you don’t want to rely on your memory and clutter your mind with things you don’t necessarily need to keep in there.
What many people who begin doing this find is that there are other benefits. For instance, you will almost invariably become more self-reflective.
Written goals are important. One thing a lot of very successful self improvement writers – Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar and so on – go on and on about is the importance of having written goals. A written goal brings clarity and focus. It gives you a direction. And by rewriting your goals you not only reaffirm what your goals are. You may also have found new insights that bring more clarity and focus to your goal and life. A written goal is also a powerful reminder that you can use to keep yourself on track.
