Creativity. Genius. Madness. Thoughts. Seeds.
Do you ever have those random days where almost anything will inspire you – from listening to Podcasts, to watching the early morning news, to looking at the commuter traffic, to looking in the mirror. Ideas are just seem to be floating all around you at a fast rate.
I recently found an interesting article on this subject.
Three Ways I Process Ideas | Ron Edmondson
You are more likely to remember ideas that you write down. I’m always impressed (and slightly nervous) in the restaurants when the waiter doesn’t write down my order, but while this may work for short-term activities, it doesn’t for long-term. Find a system of recording the ideas that come to you. Right now, for me, that’s Evernote. I have used notepads, notes on my iPhone, notebooks, etc. It doesn’t matter what you use as much as that it be a tool you have easy access to throughout the day. Use the napkin method if that’s all you have, but I find having the same tool with me each time an idea comes to me helps me keep up with the ideas better. Ideas hit you randomly, so be prepared to record them as they come.
