Go down the newsagent and buy a simple, small notebook that you can carry with you at all times (in your bag or in your pocket). Then, every time you have a bright idea – no matter how big it is – you can quickly and easily record it.
The key here is to get something you can take everywhere – keep it next to the bed, take it to the toilet, carry it on the train.

Get it done – today!
