When it comes time to conclude an experiment, it is helpful to have a log of all information and observations that could be relevant. The unexpected observations are particularly important in determining why an experiment does not conclude as hypothesized.

Why is careful obersavation important to being a scientist?

A scientist may create an hypothesis on the basis of their observations. If their observations are carelessly made or recorded then any hypotheses they offer will be inaccurate reflections of nature. A scientist may alternatively collect observations to test an hypothesis. If these observations are carelessly made or recorded then the conclusions that the scientist makes about the hypothesis could very well be incorrect. At the very least the conclusions they draw would not be based on sound evidence (because the observations are unsound).
