One thing that stopped me from publishing a blog is an editor. I miss words when I type and grammar is an issue. I wanted to look my best and be professional. At the same time, I wanted my blog to be spontaneous. So what to do?
One of my super-powers is forgetting. I use the power of forgetting to help me be my own editor. After about 7 days, I can recall what I wrote in a very vague way. After about 30 days, I can not remember what I wrote at all. My brain is so focused on the present to-do’s, everything else disappears.
It is easy to go back and edit something written from the forgotten period. I’m no longer attached to what I was trying to say. I can look at it with a fresh perspective much like an editor would.
To edit yourself, use the power of forgetting.
