Wooden Boat Hack of the Week – #17 | Wooden Boat Brainstorming for Dummies

How many times have you been working on your boat project, had a great idea or thought which you didn’t write down and Voila – it’s gone from memory a few days later.  Here’s why you need to keep a Boat Brainstorming Journal (BBJ) on your workbench:

  • When you get an inspirational idea you can write it down NOW
  • As you write down ideas, notes, and hacks, your mind will go into creative mode
  • When you’re in this creative mode, you will have even more ideas to write down (the snowball effect is amazing)
  • You can keep your BBJ and refer back to it with all your notes and creative ideas as a launchboard for future ideas and inspiration and track where your wooden boat journey has taken you

Next time you’re at the local variety store, pick up a spiral notebook, write BBJ on the cover and keep it in your shop for those amazing moments when your brain is exploding with ideas!
