When you start a project, you need to organize a lot of big ideas. These big ideas will be very important as you work. However, there are usually a lot of little things you should also think about. You need to remember these little things while you organize your big ideas. In other words, you must bear them in mind. It’s important to bear the little things in mind because they often change the big ideas in important ways.

When you bear something in mind, you actively remember it. Usually, you remember it because it will affect something else. The famous inventor and businessman Elon Musk recently launched the biggest rocket ever into space. In fact, he sent his car into orbit! However, Musk knew that he was doing a big experiment. It was possible that the rocket would explode before anything could happen. He reminded people to remember this while watching the rocket launch.
