“Where did that idea go?!”
I have had that thought more than once. There is not much more frustrating than having an idea and then not remember that amazing idea a couple of minutes later. I seem to do this in many areas of my life, from an article idea, a new thought regarding a coaching client, down to walking into the other room to do something for one of my kids.
Being a creative type who is always thinking about new concepts on productivity, purposefulness, work-life balance, and leadership, I found I was not capturing the ideas that floated into my brain. Some of my best ideas come when I am doing mindless tasks and the others seem to come during very specific situations. I realized as with everything else in my life, I had to find a practical way to capture my creative ideas.
Being creative in and of itself is great. However, if you can’t capture those ideas to share with others, or even remember it yourself 5 minutes later, it does not good.
Here’s to the Journey,
