The Importance of Taking Notes and How to be Interesting?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

It’s been a while so I would like to just share two notes which are compiled from my readings for the past few days.

The importance of taking notes.

Some people can’t just stop thinking. It might be in the middle of the night and eyes are tightly closed. But inside, streams of ideas are flowing nonstop. How to deal with this? Easy measy. Make sure you have a notepad and a pen or a pencil with you. It is important that you keep track of all your valuable ideas and one of the ways to do it is by having them on papers. This is for one particular reason:

1) To avoid waste of ideas and time – You don’t want the impromptu ideas to get lost somewhere in your brain and overwritten by new, interesting ideas. So put them on papers so that you can get back to them later, for analysis, enhancement etc. By putting it on paper, you keep your time from getting wasted from thinking about the same ideas all over again. Now that you know you have the idea stored somewhere for later review, you will be comfortable enough to start thinking of another ideas.

How to be interesting?
You need to be interested for you to be interesting. Have you heard about this phrase by John Maxwell “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”? I think they are pretty much related. Be a good listener, show them that you care, be (sincerely) interested to learn and know about them and people will find you interesting. Another thing mentioned by the author is that interesting people is good at sharing. “You can’t be interested in someone who won’t tell you anything.”
