Do you keep a diary?

May 10, 2022

The answer, for me, is "sort of". This issue of OLDaily is to a large degree the place where I do a daily reflection on what I've learned, though of course I'm constantly dumping stuff into blogs, photo galleries, social networks, and even journals. I think doing this publicly is a lot better than writing private reflections (and I've done both; I have binders full of notes and reflections from the pre-internet days). I also much prefer digital formats for their ease of search. And while any course content is grist for the mill, my reflections are based on the full range of my experience, inside and outside the course. But all of that said, it doesn't matter how you structure your creative outlet. Public or private, course-centric or not, it doesn't matter. Just do it.
