Benefits of habit “Capture all your ideas”

✓ Encourages creativity
✓ Boosts productivity when new ideas are needed
✓ Increases self-confidence
✓ May help with self-reflection

First step:

1 idea this week


1. Write down 1 idea this week
2. Write down 2 ideas next week
3. Since not all idea planning sessions can be planned, have the notebook with you all the time, so you can keep increasing the number of ideas you write down.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Trigger your mind. Since ideas don’t come at the same time, have the notebook for them somewhere always visible. That way, when you feel you got it, you can effortlessly write them down immediately.
✓ Let the app help. Track the days you managed to write down ideas and days you didn’t. You will be able to see how often they come to you.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’re satisfied with your idea output, reward yourself by picking one and making first steps to realize it. See where your ideas lead you!

Tips for beginners:

✓ Observe yourself. Once you start tracking your ideas, note during which times they come to you. Is it when you’re relaxed? Or very stressed? Does it happen on inconvenient time, like a meeting, or can you control when your mind goes to “idea zone”? Try using the best time you have for ideas to your advantage and start planning them.
✓ Have a special notebook. It should be something you like, something special, good quality and proper. It’s part of your mind after all, so make it special.
✓ Work with your ideas. Try to realize them from time to time, even the most outlandish ones. You will never know if your ideas are worth pursuing if you won’t try.
