Re: Ken Schwab's 5 modes of design/inspirations

How true...I am also already thinking of new ideas for next year, too! I
recently bought the tiny recorder from Walmart for $30...and it's been the
best $30 I've spent in a long time. I keep it in my pocket ALWAYS! When I
think of something I need to bring to school for the next day, or something
I need to buy, or someone I need to call, etc....I just pull it out and
record it...when I'm driving and "bright ideas" pop into my mind...I pull
out the recorder. At night, I take all of the messages off and type them
into a list. Each day, I mark off what I did and add the new items. It has
surely saved me recently...espcecially with so many things to do and at the end of the year.
