Hello all and welcome to another I Want to Know Wednesday! I had a brilliant idea for a blog post this morning on my way home from my workout. "That's it!" I thought. "That is the perfect beginning and the perfect topic. It will engage people well, read beautifully, launch me into a wonderful day!"(Okay, not really, but it was still good.)
I also thought of how to start an article for work I've been struggling with. The blank screen has been taunting me for days. Relief flooded me. "This," I thought, "is how you start your Wednesday."
Which means, of course, I promptly forgot both ideas.
I wasn't even in the car, so I had the ability to write them down. Did I do this? Nope. I most certainly did not. Womp, womp. So instead, I'm taking a moment to talk about how we make sure we remember things when we're inspired.
Do you do voice memos? Scribble on post-it notes? Hire a carrier pigeon?
And when do you seem to get the best ideas? In the shower? The car? At work? How do you remind yourself of said brilliance for later?
If you have a second, I'd love to know!
