Ask DN: How do you keep track of ideas?

over 8 years ago from , product designer at capital one

How do you keep track and write down your big ideas?

My current process is a hybrid between Evernote and Field Notes.

    I forget all about them, except for the fact that I had an awesome idea that I forgot all about.

    Gotta sneak an Alice In Wonderland quote in: 'Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.' – I need a better way of remembering those six impossible things.

    I use an app called Elevatr on the iphone, i add ideas then the app gives me more questions to help evaluate my idea.

    I'm keeping my ideas in http://enot.us now. This is my project for managing notes

    I use my moleskine as a design journal to keep track of stuff I do at work. When it comes to tracking ideas, I don't take a whole lot of notes though... mostly sketches with labels.
