Hi Everyone ..
I wanted to share this email that I received from Ron White today…
I have learned the importance of using my journal since starting my success journey and at first I found it a bit difficult but like everything we start it takes dedicated commitment before we see the results..
I was really impressed by Thomas Edison’s “To Do List” are YOU ??????

While reading a history book recently, I came across Thomas Edison’s “Things to do” list for January 3, 1888. Here is a brief summary:
Things doing and to get done:
– Cotton picker
– New standard phonograph
– Hand-turning phonograph
– New slow-speed cheap dynamo
– New expansion pyromagnetic dynamo
– Deaf apparatus
– Electrical piano
– Long-distance standard telephone transmitter which employs device of recording phonograph
– Duplicating phono cylinder
These are just excerpts from five pages worth of “Things to do” in 1888. WOW! It makes my “Things to do” list look a little elementary!
Thomas Edison had over 3,500 notebooks with ideas and drawings! Here is a good lesson. When I was researching the life of Leonardo da Vinci a few years ago, I discovered that he also had stacks and stacks of journals with his thoughts in them. So did Albert Einstein!
Is this a coincidence? Is it a coincidence that Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison and Leonardo da Vinci, some of the greatest minds of all time, all wrote down their thoughts? NO! There is something about journaling that activates your brain and gets your subconscious thinking. It works! Jim Rohn taught this principle as well. If you don’t believe me, believe Edison, Einstein, da Vinci and Rohn!
I currently have 15 Jim Rohn Leadership Journals on my desk with my thoughts and ideas from the last four years. If you want to feel like a great thinker, get a journal and start putting the greatest computer ever created (your brain) to work brainstorming, planning and creating!
