I get notions pretty regularly; they come and go when I’m walking and listening to podcasts or in the midst of doing some development. Too light to be an idea yet but, worthy of a little intellectual noodling – Is it feasible? Silly? Worth the investment of time? Answer yes, and just maybe it can become reality.
I’ve had a notion (pardon me having fun) that many ideas worthy of noodling are lost because they occur to us when we are swamped with work. I’ve spent countless hours in front of a spreadsheet rushing to get something done or struggling building some tricky code. No time to stop and get that thought in my head down – looking back, I have to wonder how many were lost? The Notion tool is my solution for all of us spreadsheet cubicle slaves who ask if ‘I would like to try this’, ‘I wonder if I could?’ or better yet ‘wouldn’t it be nice if. ‘ It may be new feature or way of doing something. Perhaps some simple automation that might make things easier or less tedious. Nothing earth shattering mind you sometimes just good ideas. That’s me talking for you, it could be something entirely different, it could be that next Kick Starter.
