Remember your why 2

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“I noticed an interesting pattern.

I write the things I’m working on implementing on a piece of paper, and I read them every day. Initially, I know exactly why I want to implement them. But as the days pass, the why starts to gradually fade away, until I eventually have a hard time remembering it.”

“Words draw meaning from their context. In this case, the why is the context. 

As time passes, the words do not change, but the context does, as it slowly fades from memory. That’s why it’s important to constantly remember your why [<link; short read]. 

It’s not enough to know your why.
You have to constantly access it.

Every time you read your writings, slow down and ask the question anew:

Why?
