I use a GTD system, which places a lot of focus on capturing thoughts for processing into next actions or projects. I've personally found this to be very helpful in getting myself more organized, but I've found there are times and places where capturing thoughts aren't so easy. Some examples of this include:
- The Shower
- While Driving
- In the movie theatre
There are a host of times where my usual capture methods can't be easily used - I'm sure there are more out there. I have learned that if I don't capture these thoughts within a relatively short period of time, I'll struggle to recall it later once I'm sitting in front of a pen & paper or my iPhone. What can be done to capture these thoughts for later review?
While I mentioned three specific examples of this problem, there are certainly other cases where this problem exists. Suggestions regarding capture in these sorts of scenarios would also be appreciated, although I'm getting the sense that the vast majority of cases are covered by the general application of answers already given.
