Thoughts are the output of the mind - thoughts jostle for attention, some insistent, some unsure, before slipping under the stream of what comes next. Without conscious intervention thoughts will pass, as many should. But for those that strike you as worth keeping, for whatever reason, we have one of our oldest technologies — the notebook. A place to let thoughts play, later to be combined and braced with other thoughts you stashed away. They may be refined further, until those thoughts become ideas—and ideas are the start of everything.
