Starting and maintaining an ideas diary is a great way to exercise your creativity.

You can also collect any visually interesting material you come across. This is where doing it on your phone is really cool. You can just snap a photo of an interesting article, a nice interior, a poster etc.

The point of this exercise is to exercise your ideation engine every day, and to increase your awareness of thoughts and ideas. After some time, you'll probably find yourself automatically adding material to your diary.

Have fun!
