You should document your life. Or just about anything. Document it!
Recently Ai Wei Wei made a film called the Human Flow. It is about the recent refugees’ crisis and he traveled to many countries documenting their stories. Stories of mothers, children, and refugees who had to leave their home because of their religious belief, war, or involuntary. The movement of people and their life.

At one point he said he wanted to document it because in the future, at least we can say someone documented it.
I thought this was a very deep thought. The idea behind documenting your work, progress, report, knowledge and etc. is very important to keep in mind. Maybe your future grandchildren will be able to remember your legacy, written works, or simply sparks ideas for them. Maybe it can bring back memories and happiness. Maybe you can share them with the world and influence others. We document so that we do not forget or repeat the same mistakes. We can learn from our past.

Just looking back at Motispire, I realized how far I had come. First, it was just blogs. But slowly, there were stories and ideology. Motispire is a piece of work that can influence others. And it keeps me grounded.
