Do You Create A Progress Memory Book?

This might be something that I only do because I am a creative kind of person, however I have always enjoyed making memories of things, and have taken to documenting my entire career in a book, where I put example of things that I have made, write about all of the events that I attend, and constantly update myself about my progress.

Does anyone else find that this is a good thing to do, too? It really helps, because it gives you the chance to look back in months or years and see just how far you've come, what mistakes you made, and what you could then go on to learn from them. So I do think that it's a wonderful thing to do. Does anyone else do the same?

I don't have any kind of visual memory book, however what I do have is a kind of diary, where I write everything down that I do in work each day, so that I can look back over it whenever I need to. It's good because it shows me what I've achieved, and remind me about projects that I'd enjoyed in the past but had slipped my mind. It helps me to remember to get back in touch with previous clients, too, which is often helpful.

We have a leaver's book for when the kids go off to college and no longer want lessons with us, which I suppose is pretty much the same thing, though obviously it's not my direct career that it's documenting. It is lovely to be able to look back on over time, though.

The only memory book I have is the log book of the work I've done but actually I do look through it from time to time. It does show progress over time which is good, and makes me appreciate just how much our profits have risen in the past year or so.
