The Idea Bucket

Ideas come to me from everywhere – conversations, dreams, observation, TV commercials, the news, etc. I try to get the good ones written down so I don’t forget, but I know many have slipped away. I keep little notebooks in strategic places like my night stand, the bathroom, the glove compartment in the car, and every now I then I transfer all those little bits of creativity to my idea bucket.

My bucket usually takes the form of a journal (like my favorite Moleskine), where notes are crammed, stapled, taped into submission.

Whatever form your idea bucket takes, the most important thing to remember is don’t lose the ideas! You never know where you’ll need them. And maybe, just maybe, one of them will change the world.
