One of the most important habits of mine is that I carry a small notepad and digital recorder with me at all times. The notepad allows me to write down thoughts and map out ideas as they come up. The recorder allows me to speak out my thoughts and ideas if I am not able to write, like in my car. I use a service that transcribes my voice files into text. What gets written down gets done, and you never know when you are going to think of a little task or a big idea that will make your life better.
