Occasionally this scenario comes up. Figured I would address it…
So you just started your Journal. It feels good to connect with other people. Sharing ideas, experiences, and an occasional joke.
Three weeks into it, someone asks you a question that you’ve clearly written about in your Journal. It’s right there in black and white.
Can’t they read? you think to yourself.
Well before you respond like this, consider the following:
There are so many Journals and updates being written everyday, that almost as soon as you finish reading one, you’ve forgotten some of the finer details in that Journal.
And by the time you’ve read 3 or more Journals, forget about remembering the details from the first Journal that you’ve read.
So you either have to go back and re-read a Journal from the start, which is very time consuming, or you can just ask a question from the poster.
That’s why as a matter of habit and practice I always answer questions that I’ve clearly answered previously.
Because none of us have the time to re-read every journal from the start to make sure that the question hasn’t been answered somewhere in that journal.
