We know much more than we may realize. We also forget much more than we want to admit. This is why reminders are extremely important. Sometimes a reminder is all we need to remain on the right path or to keep us moving forward. Remembering to create reminders in our life may be the only safeguard to any barriers to achieving success. We need to put more value on creating reminders in our life or at least we need to be more open to others reminding us. Sometimes we are stubborn or have too much pride to allow someone to remind us of something we already know. "I know that" becomes a reply in defiance instead of an acknowledgment that should be followed by "and thank you for reminding me so I can change my behavior".
