It was a brilliant idea – now if only I could remember what it was

Written by catpaw

This Post-it has been stuck to my desk for months:

Post-it note with the word "epiphany" written on it

The first part is easy – it’s a site I wanted to look up. Not a clue what the epiphany moment was. I remember thinking “THAT’S BRILLIANT” (with multiple exclamation points required) and then the second thought was a fatal “Oh I’ll remember this”. I keep it on my desk in the vain hope I’ll remember what the earth-shattering idea was. It’s really bugging the shit out of me. I’m at that awkward age where I keep pretending my memory is as elastic as it was at 18. If it was, I wouldn’t have 6 notepads half started with scribbled little notes. And yes, I do have 6 notepads on the go. I keep leaving them all over the city and have to start a new one when I can’t find the old one. When I retrieve the misplaced notepad, usually a friend or customer sends me a note about it, I put it in the pile until it’s rotation comes back up.

Was I going to change the world? Would it lead to enlightenment? Or maybe it was the perfect espresso ratio? Whatever it was, it’s lost for ever.
