Making Memories: Can We Choose Which Ones?
I learned a great lesson about ‘Making Memories’, and the experiences we leave with people, while writing ‘At the End of the Day‘.
Thanks to the influence of our book coach, TJ Bennet, my daughter, Laura Senior Garcia, and I, wrote alternate chapters of the book. The idea was that this would give the reader two perspectives, one from a father and one from a teenage daughter. The process seems to have worked well, and thankfully there were some wonderful lessons along the way.
One day while I was working in Dubai, TJ called me to verify some details about an event that Laura had experienced when she was about 12 years old. Laura had devoted the majority of a whole chapter to the event. To my amazement, I had no recollection of the experience that Laura had described.
At that moment I made up my mind that if I was going to provide experiences for people, then I would be a lot more conscious of the memories I was providing. If you follow my blogs you will begin too see a pattern emerging by now; each anecdote is one more Planned Experience – Memories Made and remembered
