Brainstorms, Ideas and alternate thinking!

Mortgage and Lending with Mortgage Pro

  Covering most of Eastern Pennsylvania, I travel quite a bit. Driving from office , to appointments, to the office, to more appointments, to home. (well you get the idea) All of this driving time gives me time tothink. Time to think about what I need to do for my customers, time to think about great marketing ideas, and time to think about subjects to blog about. My problem is that once I am at my computer, I forget all of the great ideas I had while I was driving.

   I can't tell you how many great ideas have come and gone, all because I was driving and couldn't write things down. I am typically not a forgetful person, but or some reason, ideas for blogs just seem to remain un-retained . I have thought about mini tape recorders to help me remember the great ideas, but having one handy remains to be seen.

 Does anyone have any suggestions for content retention? I know I have a great post or two in my head if I can just pull it out! It is actually kind of comical. I am so glad that I can laugh at myself!

Michael, I think some of the newer cell phones (maybe Iphone or Blackberry Storm) have a memo command, where you can leave yourself messages.  I can't keep track of one more thing:  lockbox key, cell, keys, business cards,etc.  But if it was included on the phone?

The phone seems to be my best bet. It still needs to be pretty handy and simple so I could work it while I am driving. i don't need to have an accident!

Yes, it's Jott.com.  You register on their website, once it's set up you can call from your phone, speak your memo to yourself and it will be sent to your email.  Very cool!

Hi Michael, Well the two suggestions I was going to make have already been said: use either the note feature on your phone (which I love) or Jott.com is a pretty cool tool as well.

Have a great day,
