The importance of sketching (for ideation)
04 September, 2020 - 1 min read
Nothing unlocks creative ideas like sketching. I'm no artist. I can't draw. But the act of mindlessly sketching when I'm bored has resulted in some of my best ideas.
It's super important.
The act of thinking on paper, capturing a thought while you're watching tv for example. Is super powerful. It allows you to come back to the idea later and build on it.
The second part of this is having the will power or discipline to put your phone down and allow yourself to be bored. But that's another post.
Main take away - I need to to keep a notebook on me (more than my phone) and use it.
More to come...
