Mark Them Down

For me, great ideas are like clouds drifting through my mind. They are here one second, gone the next. Many of these ideas get incorporated into goals and affect projects in a powerful and positive way, so don’t let them get away. If I don’t have a central place to record them, they get lost...maybe forever. Free your mind of clutter by consolidating all your thoughts and ideas in one place. Alison Morley at the International Center of Photography has students create a “UBook” as a personal diary of sorts. I suggest you create one to contain all your goals, notes, sketches, inspirations, ideas, doodles, storyboards, or anything that pops into your brain that you can use later.

It’s hard to know when a great idea will show up. When it does, mark it down! The same goes for encountering great light or great locations you may want to revisit. Mark them all down with their own categories. Some people like the old analog way of recording passing thoughts; others prefer an electronic device they are comfortable with, from an iPad to a smartphone.
