As you live another day, thousands of thoughts are running through your head. Trying to decipher them all will lead to the inevitable route to your ticket to the mental institution. Many of our thoughts are random at best therefore warrant little or no attention. However, this is where the tricky part is. In that bombardment of thoughts passing through your head, there will be these ‘genius’ moments where they will flicker in your mind for a bit and if nothing is done about them, they will leave your mind like those other random thoughts. You might think that you would remember/save it for later but that rarely happens.
You need to respect those moments. Write them down. Act on them. Or they will leave you as quickly as they come.
