I have been working on a large proposal. There are many pieces to it, and it can be hard to keep track of everything.

So I’ve been boiling down the call for proposal into a set of connected keywords. Each keyword represents a phrase that connects to the rest of the proposal.

By keeping things short, I am able to keep all the pieces of the proposal in my head at the same time. And that lets me work everything through.

It’s funny, with all the digital tools we have available now, I end up relying on an old mnemonic trick that long predates the computer age. Maybe that’s just as well.
