When you're exploring passion's potential, one of the keys is capturing the ideas and inspirations as they come. Ever had that flash of brilliance, only to have it fade into nothing because you didn't write it down?
The ten ideas they discuss are:
1. Notebook or journal
2. Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)
3. Index cards
4. Micro cassette audio recorder
5. Mind Mapping
6. Leave yourself a voice mail message
7. Flip chart
8. Butcher block paper
9. Pocket sized notepad and pen
10. Idea file/database
How about you? How do you make sure those idea-gems don't disappear? I often use what I call a "Daydream Catcher," which is basically the go-anywhere pocket sized notebook mentioned in #9. And of course, my whiteboard is probably my most important memory tool. I'm constantly scribbling random ideas up there for exploration later.
