Want to Create More? Do This One Thing

Ideas and inspiration are fleeting.

You need a way to capture those creative thoughts that pop into your head when you least expect them.

You need to write them down.

Apple Notes, Notion, Evernote, pen & paper - anywhere that you can go back and look at them.

Personally I use Apple Notes because it's the easiest, shows on both my phone and laptop, and I can transfer the notes to Notion and organize them further if I'd like.

Writing ideas down not only helps you remember and act on them, but frees up brain space to keep thinking of more things.

It helps form a library of creative ideas that you can easily draw inspiration from in the future.

The National Science Foundation did a study and found that 95% of our thoughts are repetitive, meaning the things we think about today are the same things we thought yesterday.

So by simply writing down those unique, creative ideas that float around in your head, you're able to "remember" more than the average person.

Do you use a note taking system for your creative thoughts?
