It’s important to spend some time thinking about new ideas, and you should always get your ideas down on paper. Don’t keep them up there in your head. Right down every little detail, every little thought. Keep a record of these ideas in the same place. Buy a notepad or a journal, or just keep a word document saved on your computer with all of your ideas.
The easiest way for me to get my ideas out is by saving an email draft. If you use Gmail, this is really easy to do. Save an email draft, and call it “Ideas” or whatever you want to call it. You could also save an email draft for each idea, placing your notes and important links in the email. With an email draft saved on Gmail, you will now be able to easily search for it in the search box. For example, if you remember saving an idea that you had to open up a chinese restaurant, you could just search ‘chinese restaurant’ and find the saved email draft with your idea. If you keep your ideas locked up in your head, you’re bound to forget some of them.
This method could also be applied for to-do lists, or keeping a record of important links.What’s your favorite way to keep track of your thoughts and ideas? Let’s discuss below:
