This is essential.
As many of you may know, whether taking a bath, about to doze off to sleep or walking down the street ideas can manifest themselves in the blink of an eye, and when it happens, no matter how small/big/quirky/whatever, jot it down straight away, draw a picture maybe.
At any given moment, I’ve usually got my pen and moleskine in my back pocket just in case, yet I noticed on the train the other day why it’s so important to write down even those half finished thoughts, even if they don’t make sense at that time.
Why? Well if you didn’t clock it yet, here’s the beauty of it all.
You can go back to it, finish it off, just like a crossword puzzle. That one line, that one angle that you never thought of before but has suddenly taken an average idea and has potentially made it a great one.
That’s my 2 cents for the day as I’ve had some free time.
I can’t stress enough how important it is to do this though. Think of the notepad as a back up hard drive for your thoughts, just like the one for your computer.
