I keep all my random thoughts, ideas, suggestions, AHA moments in a trello board called ideas. Every few months I go back and prune the board – removing ideas that are no longer relevant, adding on to extra cards so they have a little more context and completing deleting cards that I have utterly no idea what they meant when I wrote them down.
This week I wiped the board completely clean – purged it all – started fresh.
I then spent the next 30 minutes coming up with at least 15 – 30 new ideas for what could be good topics to blog about – nothing re-used from the old board, simply net new masterpieces.
Sometimes you need to wipe the slate, start over and branch out to get back on track to find out what direction you truly want to head in.
