At any given time I have about 32 books running through my head. I have to focus on my current project or I will never get anything done.
The most important thing I do so I don’t loose all the good ideas that come to me while I am working on my current project is to keep note books EVERYWHERE!!!!! I have about seventeen floating around.
I keep them in my purse, car (when I’m not driving), gym bag, diaper bag, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and in random places so I can get to them quick if I get a good idea.
Once a week I gather up the note books and record them as “Splash Pages” or notes in my book files. My computer desktop looks crazy, but it’s organized into folders and documents.
Don't let a good idea go, but remember to stay focused.
