    If you’re serious about becoming a wealthy, powerful, sophisticated, healthy, influential, cultured and unique individual, keep a journal. Don’t trust your memory. When you listen to something valuable, write it down. When you come across something important, write it down.

    I used to take notes on long sheets, narrow sheet, little sheets and pieces of paper thrown in a drawer. Then I found out that the best way to organize those ideas is to keep a journal. I’ve been keeping these journals since the age of twenty-five. The discipline makes up a valuable part of my learning, and the journals are a valuable part of my library.

    I must admit, if you got a glimpse of my journals, you’d have to say that I am a serious student. I’m not just committed to my craft, I’m committed to life, committed to learning new concepts and skills. I want to see what I can do with seed, soil, sunshine and rain to turn them into the building blocks of a productive life.

    Keeping a journal is so important. I call it one of the three treasures to leave behind for the next generation. In fact, future generations will find these three treasures far more valuable than your furniture.

    The first treasure is your pictures. Take a lot of pictures. Don’t be lazy in capturing the event. How longdoes it take to capture the event? A fraction of a second. How long does it take to miss the event? a fraction of a second. So don’t miss the pictures. When you’re gone, you’ll keep the memories alive.

    The second treasure is your library. This is the library that taught you, that instructed you, that helped you defend your ideals. It helped you develop a philosophy. It helped you become wealthy, powerful, healthy, sophisticated, and unique. Your library, the books that instructed you, fed your mind and fed your soul, is one of the greatest gifts you can leave behind.

    The third treasure is your journals: the ideas that you picked up, the information that you meticulously gathered. But of the three, journal writing is one of the greatest indications that you’re a serious student. Taking pictures, that is pretty easy. Buying a book at a bookstore, that is pretty easy. It is a little more challenging to be a student of your own life, your own future, and your own destiny. Take the time to keep notes and to keep a journal. You’ll be so glad you did. What a treasure to leave behind when you go! What a treasure to enjoy today!

    如果你真想成为一个富有、强大、成熟、健康、有影响力、有修养且独特的人,那就记日记吧。不要相信自己的记忆。当你听到有价值的东西时,把它记下来;当你遇到重要的事情时,把它记下来。

    我过去习惯在长纸条、窄纸条、小纸片和丢到抽屉里的便条纸上作笔记。后来我发现,整理那些想法的最佳方法就是记日记。从25岁起我一直坚持记日记,这一坚持构成了我学习中重要的一部分,而我的日记也是我藏书的珍贵组成部分。

    我必须承认,如果你看一眼我的日记,你会说我是个认真的学生。我不仅尽心尽力从事自己的职业,我也认真对待生活,积极学习新观念和新技能。我要知晓我能用种子、土壤、阳光和雨水做些什么,去为收获一个硕果累累的生活培土浇水。

    坚持记日记非常重要,我将之视为留传给下一代的三件珍品之一。事实上,后代们会发现这三件珍品远比你留给他们的家具珍贵得多。

    第一件珍品是你拍的照片。多多拍照吧。不要懒得捕捉事件。捕捉一个事件花多少时间呢?不过是瞬间罢了。错过一个事件又花多少时间?也是瞬间。所以不要错过拍照。当你离世时,照片会让一切历历在目。

    第二件珍品是你的藏书。这是教育你、引导你、帮助你坚守理想的东西。它帮助你变得富有、强大、健康、成熟和独特。你的藏书,那些引导你的书籍,为你的四喜爱那个和灵魂提供食粮,是你能传给后代的最好的礼物之一。

    第三件珍品就是你的日记:你记下的想法,你留意收藏的信息。但在这三件珍品中,记日记最能表明你是个认真的学生。拍照片,相当容易;去书店买书,相当容易。但面对自己的生活、自己的未来和自己的命运,自觉做个学生就有些挑战性了。花时间去记录,去记日记。你会为自己这样去做而感到非常高兴。当你离开人世后,这将是你留下的一笔多么珍贵的财富啊!你如今从中享受到多少乐趣啊!
