Keep a pad and a pen by your bed

Yes, this was the truth. I finally knew what to do.

I was so sure. It was a brilliant insight.

I brimmed with confidence. First thing in the morning, I would get started. This time, nothing could stop me.

And when I woke, all I could remember was the certainty.

I had no clue what insight had made me so certain, so confident.

How many cures for cancer have been lost because someone said, “I’m sure I’ll remember in the morning,” turned over, and went back to sleep?
