When you have an idea, write it down.
This is advice that I personally should tell mtself to take. I can’t begin to tell you how many brilliant ideas I have had that have been lost simply because I failed to follow my own advice. Whether ideas for businesses or ideas for the blog posts I’ve been writing, there have been several too many ideas washed down the brain-drain since the first time I ever had an idea.
With apps like evernote, or even the notepad that comes with your phone, there should be no excuse. If you need to, you can even use the old fashioned post-it. There’s no excuse for a good idea to escape your mind.
