Any #goal that is not #written out in some form is not really a goal, but a #dream . They are called #dreams because they rarely happen except in your mind. One of the keys to #achieving a goal is for the goal to be on the forefront of your #mind , all the time. The more you think about it, the more likely it is to become a #reality . The problem with not writing your goals out is that when your goal is only in your mind and not on paper, you rarely think about it, except when a part of your brain called the reticular cortex triggers the #thought . The problem here is that your reticular cortex only triggers the thought when it sees something that reminds it of your goal. The real reason you should absolutely write, not type your goals out has more to do with how you think and how your brain works. The truth is, your #subconscious mind works better when you are constantly #building new #neural #pathways in your brain and then reinforcing those pathways through #neuroplasticity . How do you do that? Every time you do something that makes your brain #work it builds those neural pathways, then every time you repeat those same actions, it reinforces those pathways. #Neuroscience has proven that when you write something out that takes deep thought like your goals, you build over 10,000 new neural pathways in your #brain in one sitting. Whereas when you type your goals out on a computer, you are only building 600 new neural pathways. If you do the basic math, that means you are building 16.6 times more new neural pathways when you hand #write your goals out compared to #typing them on a computer. That also means that you will get significantly better results when it comes to keeping your goals on the forefront of your mind. That also means that you have a significantly better chance to achieve your goals than those that just type them out on a computer. -Rick Corbett Jr.
