  • As a strategy look for processes/repeated actions where value can accumulate
  • Look for strategies where you can facilitate the accumulation of value - family and friends input adds value
  • Single most valuable investment you can make!!! invest in something you can quickly jot notes in and keep with you at all times.
  • Ideas, memories, actions can strike you any time. Write them down so that you don't loose them. 5 seconds and they can be lost.
  • A small note book is cheep and simple to use.
  • Writing down ideas etc as  you have them has two big advantages
    • The act of writing them down helps you remember them in the short to medium term
    • One you have them written down you can store them and come back to them at a later date. Reuse them, use them to spark new ideas, think about them more and develop them.
