I've got notes if you want them. They're in a notebook in my backpack.
If you can't get a hold of me this week, you'll have to remind me that they're in my backpack when you talk to me next week.
If you forget about it for a few weeks and then remember...well, there's a pretty good chance they'll be in my backpack, unless I've cleaned it out by then.
That's what I do. I keep a hold of them until I no longer remember what they're about. Every once in a while I'll find some random notes that will say stuff like:
-you can impress with big meetings, but you'll only impact one on one or in small groups
-rabid dog analogy
-time does not equal money, it equals time
-call Steve from KGLA and ask him for his video about sharks
-remember to ask Fuller about those elf shoes
and there are always one or two with big stars next to them
* DON'T TAKE THE GRAVY BOAT WHEN THE TRAIN WILL GET YOU THERE JUST AS FAST!!!
I rarely can remember what any of these mean. That's the problem with conferences, seminars, speeches in general...they last about a week or two. If you ask most people what they heard in a meeting/church/conference two weeks prior, they probably could just retell a funny story or talk about a wacky video they saw. It's quickly forgotten...unless the ideas were implemented.
That's what I gotta do while these are still fresh. I've gotta start acting on them.
I'll begin now...if only I could remember what the gravy boat represented...
