A quick hack for capturing ideas when you don’t have your bullet journal

Sometimes, you just can’t write stuff down in your bullet journal — either because you don’t have it with you, or you’re on the run. This happens to me all the time while I’m walking somewhere or at a rock show or what-have-you. It’s really important for your brain and productivity to capture these ideas or to dos when they occur to you. It decreases the stress of having too many things in your head and also assures you won’t forget (don’t you hate it when you think… “oh, this idea is so good, I won’t forget it!” but then you do?).

My go to solution for this problem is the excellent and super-simple app Captio for iPhone. When you get it, you set it up with your email address (that’s it!). Now, whenever you have an idea you need to not forget, you open the app, type something in there to remind you of it and hit send. Poof! It’s in your email inbox next time you check it. You’re ready to add it to a bullet journal to-do list or collection of project ideas, or put it wherever it goes and put it into action. I love this app.

I hear tell there’s an app called Email Me that does much the same thing for Android.

Happy productivity!
