Clever idea for idea people

with one comment

People generally get ideas and inspirations when they are doing something physically and mentally undemanding, so that their mind is free to wander a bit: driving, showering, and the like.

The result is that quite often people get ideas in the bathroom—while shaving, for example. So here’s the clever idea (which I’ve not seen elsewhere, but since it’s obvious, others have probably suggested it):

Hang a dry-erase marker from a string beside your bathroom mirror. When inspiration strikes, you can readily make a note—even a diagram—and then later erase it (when you realize that the idea wouldn’t work anyway 🙂 ).

  1. This is a great idea. Since my teens I’ve used dry-erase markers on mirrors, car windshields, you name it, when inspiration struck. There’s one on the visor in my Subaru right now. Which also reminds me – on long trips I would scrawl directions for a leg of the trip right on the windshield. Not as helpful at night, or in winter when the glass gets cold and sweaty.
