They say the weakest ink is still better than the strongest memory. Perhaps you realize the value of idea capturing but don't know how to do it well. This article tells you 3 easy methods to get you started.

At anytime of the day, ideas may appear just to be forgotten a few moments later. Even if it was a great idea that you think you may not forget, you usually miss it the next time you want to use it. If that sounds familiar for you, you should really try to capture your ideas before they disappear.

When you have an idea capturing system, you will have a lot of time when writing articles. You will also prevent what seems to be the writer's block and make writing much easier.

Here are 3 methods of capturing ideas:

1. Use a notepad

Use one that you are comfortable with. If you have to wait until you go back to your home to write the ideas down, you can wave good bye to them. Having note taking device close to you can really help you use it.

2. Use note-taking software

If you work behind the computer most of the time, note-taking software may come in handy. Typing your ideas into your computer allows you to keep a copy your ideas in digital format. The advantage is, you can search for them later using the search tool.

Software is more manageable, but it is not for everyone. If you use software but find yourself not using it, perhaps it is time to use another idea capturing methods.

3. Use recording device

Recording devices are now easily portable and fit into your pocket. You can use it to capture ideas on the go whenever you are. Just make sure you write them down later and often so you don't have to keep listening to hours of the recordings just to find one piece of idea.

Pick one method that sounds right for you and start using it. You may find some problems when you're starting out, and that's normal. Making anything a habit takes a few week to a month. If you stick to it, you will get the benefits though.
