FORM the habit of writing down important thoughts which you wish to have prominently in your mind. The notebooks you keep of these thoughts will then consist of the significant ideas from your mind and the books you read, which will become valuable repositories of truth.

The practice of writing will impress divine thoughts clearly upon your mind, and intermittently reading them aloud will ingrain the ideas upon your consciousness. Vague and vagrant thoughts are clarified and improved in the process of putting them into written form. Ideas are not fully your own until you have expressed them clearly in speech or writing.

The notebook habit is of immense practical value in training the mind to clear and logical thinking.
