You did, but you’ve probably already forgotten.
A key ability for doing astonishing work is interrupting our forgetting.
Others may have considerable skills and intelligence, but if they forget what they’ve come upon and you don’t, you provide yourself with an advantage for doing something valuable to bring to others. In fact, giving away what you’ve seen – in your own words – is a way of interrupting forgetting. Reflecting is another way – reflecting being a way of practising remembering.
What did you learn?
What do you want to remember?
What was most useful to you?
‘The shortage is in people willing to do it. To take a leap. To walk onto the ledge and start.’*
Why not use what others forget?
