Today I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite creations:
My Ideas Journal!
I made it out of a Mini Wheats box a few months ago, made the cute little illustration on the front, and I have been busy filling it ever since! I have found the creation of my Ideas journal immensely helpful, because it keeps me organized, inspired, and constantly thinking of new things.
Here's how it works:
- I write in my Ideas journal every night. It's like a ritual, before I go to bed. I spend five to thirty minutes writing down any new ideas I've had that day, plus other stuff I can think of while I'm writing
- I include everything in this journal: blog post ideas, possible money-making ventures, ideas for Movie Making Club, which I run at my school, thoughts on college and career stuff, product ideas, dreams for the future, and solutions to problems
- Instead of keeping tedious sections and lists on different pages, I just write the dat at the top of the entry, diary style, and then write out my ideas below, usually in list form, with descriptions and drawings for clarity
- On the inside covers, I pasted in pictures that inspire me to fuel my ideas. Plus, it looks prettier than the cereal box exterior
Do you have an ideas journal? Do you want to make one now?
