I was chatting with a fellow blogger today about how often great ideas pop into her head and then she forgets to write them down. I know I drive a lot to teach coupon classes and speak at events so I’m not always exactly comfortable writing while I drive. And nothing causes my mind to wander more than driving along looking at beautiful water.
I know some people keep a notepad by their bed to write their ideas down because they come while they are sleeping or drifting off to sleep. But if you are like me and blind as a bat the notepad won’t really work either. I can not imagine that my handwriting would be even remotely readable in the morning.
I have discovered a new toy that makes my life easier- the voice memo recorder on my smart phone.
In October I got my first smart phone and the fact that I ever was able to function without one totally baffles me now. It’s my planner, GPS, phone and messaging service all in one. And now I can use my voice memo recorder to collect my thoughts without having an accident while driving or trying to read my hieroglyphics in the morning.
Sometimes I love technology.
