Buy a blank book or a notebook with a particular journal topic in mind and keep this book for only that topic. You may decide to keep several kinds of journals at the same time, so remember that you do not have to journal every day.
Business ideas are coming to us all the time — where are you going to keep those ideas so that you can use them in the future? Keeping a journal for your business ideas will be one of the best business tools you can have.
“We have 50,000 ideas run through our minds daily. Ideas are like wet slippery fish. You got to get ‘em when they show up or they will slip away never to be seen again.” – Earl Nightingale
In its simplest form an idea journal is accomplished when we take the time to commit our ideas to paper. It makes no difference whether it’s done with a notepad or a fancy journal. The effect is the same. All your ideas need to be recorded.
