Ideas are slippery little things, they escape from your mind like a wet bar of soap squirts out of your hand. They will come and go much like a summer thunderstorm.
Capture them! Write them down! All it takes is one idea, one way of making something work. Jim Rohn says “Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.”
Sure, it takes action and implementation and you can’t act on every one. But, it’s like brainstorming; more is better.
I put my ideas in what I like to call an idea bank. This way, I won’t forget them and I can look over them and see which ones are still relevant and which one I want to act on next. This process, by the way, generates even more ideas. The idea bank yields interest!
I will often send myself a text from my phone and then later that day transfer them into a Google Doc. I have separate documents for business, blog, and general.
Question: Do you have a system in place to capture your ideas? What is it?
