So lately people asked me how I organize my ideas and thoughts. I’ve never really gave it a thought but here it goes. “The process” usually has three stages.
1. Capturing the idea, words with my phone. I use Google Keep to organize. It gives me the opportunity to capture videos, photos, texts, links and lists. To me it is the best list tool out there.
2. When there is an idea I put my dents in I use the Moleskine to write a short description in the length of a tweet (which I usually tell people about) and a bigger one (which is only for me) I list peoples names who could help me, what I would need to get started and more information on the idea. I try to gather as much as possible.
3. The big moleskine is my sketchbook, I usually take notes of meeting in the big one, I make “action steps” for projects and last but not least I use it to sketch first impressions of my idea.
That’s all I do, how do you keep your ideas organized? (Put your process / picture in the comments!)
"I don’t know" is a simple phrase. It tells you the person you’ve asked something doesn’t know the information you are looking for.
This is quite weird to me, recently I have been to a conference and I took a few sessions during the conference and did some networking out of 5 sessions, there was only one session where the speaker replied “I don’t know” to a question asked by the audience.
Why is that? Has it become a big shame in the age of the internet to not know a certain information, because we have the possibility to look up everything instantly or do people just feel ashamed?
When was the last time, you didn’t know something and admitted it to a group of people?
This is the event schedule for the first day for failure in berlin.
