A Record of Thought

Well, in starting my new practice of mostly daily posts, I accidentally posted on my old Chinese blog. I went ahead and reposted it here.

One of the things that excites me about writing every day is having a record of what I was thinking about. For instance, I was on to something here. And I described this pretty well. But I was definitely wrong about this. I like the strategy I was proposing, but maybe it couldn’t have worked.

I wish I had a better record of what I’ve been thinking over the past ten years.

Five years from now, what will I look back on and say, “I can’t believe you thought that!”? What, if anything, was I prescient about that many others were missing? What did I miss?

Hopefully my thinking will improve over time. (Although I suppose at some point there may be an inevitable decline!)
