Last night, right before sleep, I had an awesome idea for a Question of the Day. Whatever it was.
My friend R, a songwriter, keeps a little recorder in his car and when he has an idea for a melody or a lyric, he sings into it. If he's not in his car, he calls his voicemail and leaves himself a message.
When I'm not in bed and have an "Ah ha" moment, I usually take notes. But there's something about those moments before sleep and right when I wake up that are packed with seemingly genius ideas that I never keep track of.
What about you? How do you hold on to great ideas?
