Here’s a quick tip for anyone, who wants to ensure they never lose a great idea again.
It’s a fact that you are never more than one great idea away, from achieving a massive breakthrough. That’s why it’s so important for you to be prepared when inspiration strikes, so you can capture it!
Here’s the thing with inspired ideas: They tend to come to you at the worst possible times.
Inspiration has a strange habit of striking when you are not holding a pen and paper or sat in front of a computer. You will be; walking, cycling, waiting for a train, going for a run, stuck in traffic, etc. As a result, it’s way too easy to forget that great idea by the time you get back to the office.
Use a digital audio recorder
Everywhere I go, I carry a small, digital audio recorder with me. It’s about the size of a packet of gum and it can record dozens of hours of audio. As soon as I get an idea, it goes straight into the recorder. Then, at the end of each work day, I go through the recordings I’ve made.
For example, I wrote these 34 marketing tips after listening to 34 short audio recordings of marketing ideas I had captured. So, if you’re looking to treat yourself to an inexpensive yet extremely useful Christmas gift, this might be a great little investment.
