Show Notes: 7 Tips to Become a Better Speaker

#2 - Capture Your Ideas

In Tip #1 on how to become a better speaker, I challenged you to do all you can to learn, grow, and develop as a Thought Leader on your topic.

But...if you don't capture the ideas you discover, Tip #1 is useless.

Years ago, someone gave me advice that was so simple, yet it has become one of the most important habits I practice as a speaker.

Here's the advice: When You Think It, Ink It.

Whenever I find something that fits my topic, I write it down immediately.

But I don't just write it down. I make sure to save it in a place where I can find it later.

For some people, that place is a journal or notebook.

For me, it's Evernote. I have a speaking folder in Evernote where I capture all the ideas about my speaking topic that pop into my brain. (BTW, the main reason I like Evernote is it's much easier to search for what I've recorded than it is in a journal or notebook.)

But no matter what system you use, never forget... When You Think It, Ink It.
