How not to forget great ideas

How not to forget great ideas


If you're like me, you come up with a bunch of ideas. It doesn't matter where you are. You could be in the shower. You could be watching some weird Hollywood movie where you don't have to think about it. I do that all the time... walking your dog... I walk my dog all the time, and I'm constantly coming up with ideas.

Now, sometimes if I forget my phone, I forget those ideas as soon as I get back, when I'm walking my dog. But a lot of the time, I have my phone on me, and there's one app, and I'll put a link to it below its Drafts. I've used it for years and years. And I use the app purely because of how simple it is to create a new note.

Now we have Apple Notes. We have Craft. We have Notion. We have Basecamp. We have all of these apps, and they're great doing their thing, but what's not great about them is the number of clicks you need, and you have to do in order just to type something and just write something.

Now, a lot of people use email, and that's okay. You create a new email, you blah, blah, blah, you save it and then... save it as a draft. But again, loads and loads of clicks. Now Drafts. It's in my doc on my iPhone. I click it. It gives me a brand new page. I type the thing in and forget about it. I don't even... I don't do anything with it. Just leave it in the inbox. It's kind of like an inbox in there.

And then when I get back, I actually have a task reminding me, "did you put anything in Drafts?" And then I put it into the right place, whether that's in my Apple Notes.

So having the ability to jot down your ideas, thoughts, and things that you want to use for your business is paramount to getting that thing done.

So, you have to make it as simple as possible to not lose those ideas, not to forget those things. And Drafts is one thing that I highly recommend for you to check out. As I said, I'll put a link down somewhere here, below.

Anyway, hopefully, that helps. If you have any questions about Drafts or any other app in fact, let me know. There'll be a button to contact me. Let's have a chat.

Have a great day. I'll see you in the next one. Ciao.
