As David Allen tells us: "Your mind is for having ideas, not for holding them." So what do you do about the ideas that come to you in the shower? It's been quite a while since I posted about writing in the shower, so it's time for an update.
The dive slate is still a perfectly fine option; you can get these through dive shops, or you can get the one shown above from Cindy Helgason at Soupourri Natural Bath & Body; she includes a non-rusting hook to hang it from. [Image from Amazon.com]
And the washable crayon is still a decent option, too. Jennifer Barthe writes on HubSpot, "I too get my best ideas in the shower. I use washable crayons to write down my ideas on the tiles and then I write them down on paper later." Just be sure the product you're using is not going to cause any staining issues. (Some have reported problems.) Crayola says, "The Crayola Washable formula was designed to wipe off of most walls and non-porous household surfaces with just warm water and a sponge."
But I'm also intrigued by some newer products, including Aqua Notes - a waterproof notepad.
The Droodle is a similar product - a waterproof notepad. [via GeekAlerts]
