HANDLING OF FLASHES OF IDEAS

Standard

Human brain is very powerful. We get brilliant and useful ideas from our brain at different points of time. But this time is not fixed. We may get such ideas, at the time of our thinking, even when we least expect them. These may occur just before sleeping, just after getting up, waiting at a bus stop, railway station or airport or even when we get some free time. Ideas come in a flash and may go away equally suddenly, if we do not understand them equally fast. It may get lost forever. Hence we .should record the idea immediately, in very brief say in one line or a few words to get some hint later. At one stage when I found that I was losing such ideas I arranged immediately a small pocket diary along with a pen in my pocket to write the point in brief immediately without making any judgement about its utility or otherwise. This judgement about importance and value should in fact be done later on. We can even keep a few sheets of loose paper in the pocket to record the points. There can be more than one diary since it will be better to always keep one diary and pen near the pillow on the bed. My experience is that the ideas have sometimes come at some bizarre moments in life. Most of these ideas have been found to be very successful. These ideas may be brand new, unheard of or old ideas in which the mind suggests improvement, involvement or participation or progressing of an existing idea. The skill lies in not only carefully recording the idea but first in identifying the brilliance, progressing and following it to its logical conclusion. The time required for ripening of the idea may vary, not only as per the idea but also our efforts, time and seriousness put in by us.
