How You Capture Ideas

How You Capture Ideas

How you write down your ideas matters:

If you capture ideas in Word, they will receive the structure and rigidity of straight lines and font selection, possibly before the idea is fully formed. The polish you gain dampens divergent thinking and idea development.

If you capture ideas on paper, they will receive the fluidity and flexibility of analog, no fonts or straight lines to worry about. But from total freedom comes the opportunity to leave ideas in low fidelity, never to be shared.

The right method and combination of tools for capturing – and executing upon – ideas is a personal one.

Don’t be told how to do it. But be mindful that your choice of method influences the development of your ideas and your future.
