Anyone keep notes / journal?
I'd like to know if this is normal or Aspergers worthy
I keep notes on everything. I use my iPhone/Mac Notes app to record things for future reference:
"Daily thoughts": I've been building this document since Aug 2017. It doesnt actually contain daily thoughts, just interesting concepts and ideas from books and YouTube etc. It's 95,000 words now. I transfer it from Notes to Word every quarter. I try to write a few pages of these out every weekend in order to remember them
"Business": I record and number business words and phrases that make me sound smart. The words number up to 762 and the phrases are probably a lot more than that.
"Social": I type out words, facts and phrases that can be used in a social setting, for talking about politics etc. I have 290 words and a lot more phrases. Things I've heard that sound interesting.
"Quotes": Split between Normal, Philosophical and Finance quotes. Theres around 1 thousand.
"Funny": Hundreds of one liners and funny things I've seen on twitter, instagram and Facebook i can try to pass off as my own.
"4hww": I type out every business idea I have in there. And try to have "idea sex" with them, as James Altucher recommends.
"Metaphors" - Self explanatory
"Deutsche/Spanish/French/thai/latin/Arabic/Dutch" - Words and sayings in other languages and how to pronounce in English.
Then I have random ones like how many burpees I did over the course of a week, then never do burpees again. I also have a record of NoFap.
Then I have a Word document for book summaries. It's 320,000 words. Mostly try to type the summary myself, but if I cant be bothered I will copy and paste the summary from google.
Anyone else do this?
