5 Ways I Use My Phone To Capture Content Ideas
Your phone is with you all the time. We don’t even leave it during our toilet time. In fact, people need it more then.
We live in a time when our phones are the most essential part of our lives. It’s almost impossible for some to imagine a life without our phones.
As a 90s kid, I got to experience life without phones. It’s something the new generation will never know.
Phone addictions have become normal. Research says that people spend six to nine hours daily on their phones. It’s a sad reality in today’s world.
Even I’m guilty of being addicted to the device at one time.
I’ve learned how not to get controlled by my phone. Instead, I now use my phone to meet my requirements.
We need to understand that we have the power. We can control the notifications. We can choose not to be on social media. We can control not getting affected by other people’s opinions of us.
As a writer, I use my phone to generate content ideas. Since I always have my phone with me, it helps me capture ideas instantly.
Here are five ways I use my phone to capture content ideas.
1. Make use of the “Notes” app
Every smartphone has a “Notes” app.
It works in an obvious way. You write notes about whatever you want on the app.
Whenever an inspiration or idea strikes, I quickly open the app and write it down. Sometimes, I also Whatsapp myself (yes, you can do that now) to quickly capture the idea so I wouldn’t forget about it.
There is no specific rule to write on the app. You can do it in a way that suits you best. The point is that you must understand the context to convert it into a meaningful idea later.
I use simple text and bullet/numbering to write down ideas, thoughts, feelings, and about specific events.
