Anyway, my comment was meant to be snarky in response to a member of Tim's team starting up her blogging career, and wondering if she had enough to say (among other things). My comment:
"Hi Amanda -
Welcome to the digital world. Just keep a small notepad tucked in a pocket protector like Tim, and you'll have more than enough ideas to fill up your blogging goals....
Ha-ha. Reminds me of a great scene in Fight Club (How's that working out for you? How's what working out? Being clever...)
Anyway, as it turns out, Tim gets all the blog comments and sends me the following note:
Tim even sent me a picture of this notebook, appropriately titled "Think" (pictured to the right). The only thing that could have made it better was if it had an exclamation point behind it...
"Think!" More of a call to action from my point of view...
But one thing this brief exchange reminded me of was that I generally flow in and out of being systematic in capturing my most creative ideas. Sometimes I'm a notebook guy, sometimes I'm the digital guy, etc.
Sometimes I really suck at making sure the A-list ideas I have are captured.
How do you do it? Do you have a pad titled, "Think!"? Do you email yourself? More importantly, how do you put that stuff to action?
I gotta get better at this part of my life. I'm thinking about having Tim order two next time he's at the "Think" store. Seriously.
