The Thunderbox Papers.
A Thunderbox is Australian slang for an old style outside toilet that was little more than a drafty wooden shed over a hole in the ground.
They also used a wad of pages (usually out of a magazine or newspaper) stuck on an old piece of wire for toilet paper. Life was rough back then. Hardcore.
So. Each week I will publish a new Thunderbox Paper.
The idea is that it is a one page overview of some topic that you can print out and stick on the door of your toilet (hence thunderbox)
It will always be only one page. Sometimes it will be VERY short (just a few lines).
The trick is to make it ONE thing1 for you to remember before the next paper is published.
To make this work you must commit to posting on your toilet door (you could even consider posting on the toilet door at work) and taking a moment to read over each time you………well, you know. Business.
The goal is to commit each paper to your long-term memory before the end of the week. So repetition is essential (as is business regularity).
Even if its is just a single blood value or suchlike, print it and stick it.
- It may not always be on a topic that is relevant to you. It may be something you are already well familiar with. So…skip that paper. [↩]
