A while back I was on a mission. I was sick of having good ideas in the shower and then forgetting them by the time I was able to get to a pen and paper or PC. It got to the point where I was consciously trying NOT to think in the shower so I wouldn’t end up annoyed.
My first thought was to use a grease pencil on the shower walls but while it would easily go on the shower walls, it wouldn’t easily come off. Messy.
Then I tried a child’s toy like these but another brand that I can’t find anymore probably because they sucked.
Then I considered these waterproof note pads which are cool but I wasn’t sure where I’d keep them in the shower. There isn’t a whole lot of shelf space.
I was about to give up when I finally found the answer — AquaNotes. I’ve been using them for a few years now and I have to say they’ve changed my life. It turns out that many of the ideas I have in the shower are actually pretty good. In addition for some reason I always think of grocery items in the shower and now I keep a running list in there.
I plan my work day on AquaNotes, I plan my weekend tasks as well. Some of my best Generator Land ideas have come in the shower, proof of which is scattered around my home office.
Even if you don’t normally come up with ideas in the shower I have a feeling that once you’re staring at that blank pad and pencil they’ll start to flow. Trust me.
