Write it down now

I constantly have ideas for the next blog post I’m going to write. Well, except when I sit down to start writing.

I’ve learned that, when I have an idea pop into my head, I must immediately write it down. Notebooks, iPhone notes, bookmarks, even scribbled onto my hand if need be.

I have a nice list of thoughts and ideas now, but it’s incredible how often I have an idea I love and STILL assume that I will remember it in the next ten minutes or so only to realize I’ve completely forgotten what I was thinking about in about 30 seconds.

Write that thing down. Now.
