How to come up with an ideas list.
1. Check out Challenges
I always look at the current Challenges to see what resonates and inspires me.
2. Read my Feed
Someone else's list often gives me an idea for a new list of my own.
I log all my completed lists in Twos, mostly so that I can see where I've written/scheduled a list. But I also use the List function to jot down ideas for future lists. I compile lists of things to do, projects, places to go, books to read and then, along the way, many of these evolve into ideas for NotePD lists.
I'm in a Filofax phase. Or you could use a notebook or simple paper. I love sitting somewhere quiet, or in a café where I won't be disturbed, and noting things down. Many of my lists start in my Filofax.
I've found inspiration in podcasts recently. Sometimes a throw away comment that has sparked an idea for me.
6. My life
I like writing quirky lists - my favourite fountain pens, characters in TBBT, stuff from life in general (like the perils of selling on Facebook), what's in my YouTube 'watch later' list. I write a Weekly Roundup which I also export to Instagram.
7. Ask my husband
If I'm really stuck, I'll ask my husband for a list idea. He usually comes up with something interesting!
Make lists of favourite tracks, podcasts, albums and include a link. They show up nicely in NotePD too.
9. The tenuous list
I've created what I call tenuous lists sometimes. A list that has been cobbled together or feels like a bit of a cheat. But a list is a list.
10. Find your best time to create
I had a long phase when I created my list last thing at night. This caused quite a few tenuous lists as I was too tired by then. I've now started doing my list first thing. I come up with better ideas and my lists are more considered. Find a time that works for you.
