Alright I am thinking of designing this site for xyz need or customers. Now when i am thinking...ideas that pop up in my mind are about lot of things, which are not necessarily related to graphic design immediately.
Ideas cover from new features, animations, inquiries/theories, user interaction, website layout...to everything else.
Basically ideas are born from new insights that i gain as i go deep into the goal. I could just write them, but some are just too simple to be written down. But i know i will rediscover them like 4 times more because i'll also forget them. Whereas others require more thinking but if i think about them i'll definitely lose the mood that i am in for doing what i am doing now. And it may very well all amount to procrastination.
So it got me wondering is there any tool, strategy, workflow, tips, or anything else that helps in profiting from these ideas.
Tools like that let me store ideas by features double click them to see extra details.
Workflow...like stop every now and then review what you have done..write down things that you think you ought to further research or think about. Also dot down new features that seem very helpful and natural by user's point of view.
or keep notebook/(notepad open) near by to write down whatever is in your mind then later when done go over them..
or one other way would be store ideas but don't implement them but think of them features that you would like to have implemented in next version.
I guess my goal would be to not waste brain cycles, minimize amount of revisions, and mainly not lose brain gems.
