Never Forget Your Great Ideas Again
Now that I’m a “blogger”, I’m often thinking about ideas for articles. Problem is, most of my ideas come to me when I’m not in a position to write them down. Well today, here’s what I did on the way to work this morning.
1) When I got to a red light, I broke out the Crackberry and opened up the Voice Recorder. It’s under “Options” and has an icon that looks like a microphone.
2) The interface is extremely simple. I recorded my idea in about 10 seconds.
3) I was thrilled to notice that you can email your voice recordings right out of that interface :). So I emailed the idea to my inbox.
4) By the time I got to the office, my idea was waiting for me! Note: the file type is an .amr file. This file type can be opened in Quicktime or Real Player without a plug in. If you use Windows Media Player, you’ll find free plug-ins with a Google search.
Now, my next step of course is putting my idea into play. After all, an idea without execution is called a waste of time.
