Keep pencil and paper handy at all times

This is from my Covey Planner:

"A man would do well to carry a pencil in his pocket and write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought are commonly the most valuable and should be secured because they seldom return."
Sir Francis Bacon, essayist, philosopher, and statesman (1561-1626)

I use a Covey planner to be organized. I also have a thin notebook about the same size. I typically jote down more than a dozen ideas a day in the notebook. It has been very effective for me.
