The comments on The Calm Before The Launches post have shown me that part of what I gain by writing this blog each day is organization. By capturing your stream of consciousness, at quiet unhurried times, you are able to capture the important thoughts running through your brain. In my case these thoughts are typically those that relate to the the component parts critical to my future success.
Works best for the big picture. For me, the stream of consciousness writing style is most effective capturing big picture concepts. I write this style of post about the projects and topics most important to my life at the moment. It has become obvious to me that our subconscious minds are constantly engaged. Stream of consciousness writing is a method to let all that knowledge and brain power see the light of day.
You are what you think about. I believe that our conscious mind sets the course for our lives and that our subconscious mind finds ways to make our conscious thinking reality. By filling your brain with positive messages related to the goals you want to achieve, you are providing inputs for your subconscious to work with. The writing that comes out of me is a result of the reading I do each day and the people I choose to spend time with. When I read some of my old work this concept becomes crystal clear to me.
Stream of consciousness writing is my subconscious exposed. The comment Joe Sorge made on The Calm Before The Launches post was an ah-ha moment for me. About one week after that post published, the updated ColorMetrix web-site (mentioned in the post) was launched. This past week, significant events moved almost every other project on that list forward. For months my subconscious has been working along side my conscious mind on all the work necessary to move these projects forward. By writing that post, I exposed a well thought out plan that my conscious mind had been too busy and engaged to see.
So, what are you thinking about, that you don’t even know you are thinking about?
