The Currency Of A Good Idea

As you’re looking at my drawing above I want you to think about the theme song from Doogie Howser, just cause I think it has a good vibe, and you know, he was kind of the blog pioneer when you think about it.

Ideas are money

Have you ever had an idea that you just can’t stop thinking about like a song that’s been stuck in your head for 15 years and you can’t get it out?

Remember this? ^

I get like that sometimes. I have those middle of the night ideas that I just have to get out of my head and write it down.

My preferred writing medium is of course on an ipad (see favorite app).

When you have a great idea there is literally no telling what it can become.

Maybe it’s a fleeting thought. Maybe it’s a great invention. Maybe it’s just a self-affirmation that you need to tell yourself.

Either way, make writing a part of your daily ritual. And not just typing it out. Actually writing it.

There is something so human and natural when you actually write by hand.

Get that idea out there.

Your ideas are worth sharing.
