Harvesting inspiration!

Inspiration strikes me all the time, but not when I’m well equipped to jot it down. And I’m absent minded, so I may be obsessed with some new purse idea all afternoon but as soon as I get in my car and leave work? Lost. The idea is gone for weeks.  I try to keep track of ideas as best as possible; here are some methods I use vs how effective they are.

- Work notebook:

The worst. Things go in and never come out.

- Planner:

Ok if I remember to take the pages out and hang them by my desk.

- Notes in my cell:

I’m good about checking them at least once a day so I’m more likely to get stuff going.

- Sticky notes on my desk top:

Pretty sweet. I make mini to do lists and knock them down.

- Email text messages to myself:

Most effective. I emailed this! And got a hand cramp texting it all ahaha

    I am all about the desktop sticky notes! Sometimes G reads them and asks what they mean. They only make sense to me. It’s like i have my own secret code :)

      That’s how I was with taking notes in school, I sort of ended up developing my own shorthand. I felt bad any time someone asked to copy my notes because they couldn’t read them aha
