Most of my best ideas come when I am doing one of the following three things: Jogging, showering, or lying in bed trying to fall asleep. I guess that makes sense though, since those are the occasions that my brain is unoccupied and free to wander.
However, it's a sad irony that those are also the times that it's most difficult for me to make note of these inspirations. Solution? I need to be able to send myself an email directly from my brain. Then when I wake up/get out of the shower/get home, there it is, sitting in my gmail inbox.
That should be doable, right? I mean, it looks like people first started figuring out how to send emails between brains back in 2014, and I don't even need to get my messages into a second brain.
