How Can I Turn My Mess of Ideas Into Something Organized and Useful?

How Can I Turn My Mess of Ideas Into Something Organized and Useful?
I would argue that a huge way to manage having a confusing mess of ideas is to segment them and then actually do them. I've been podcasting for a year, and writing for much longer than that. But only recently have I figured out how to untangle the mess of concepts and goals that exists in my brain. Too many times, I talk to people who are creatively charged and hear that they're working on a book, a movie, a tv show, a comic, a web series, a podcast, and a blog.........but they're "still sort of planning how to do them." Meaning they're doing absolutely nothing. I have done and still do the same thing. If your laser is too broad, focus it down to the one project that you're immediately interested in doing, and what is most practical. i.e, leave your web series on the back-burner while you start up your podcast. The best way to turn your mess of ideas into something organized and useful is to do some light categorizing, and then actually start using them.

9 Free Conference Calling Services Businesses often need to get together to collaborate. That means you occasionally need to hold conference calls with clients, customers, and employees.

Bouncy Curled Under This is one of my favorite ways to style my hair, especially when it's at it's awkward stage.

Weighing Security Against Convenience: What Works, What Doesn't, and What's Best for You It pleases me that my notions about the security of passwords are at par with industry experts, while I'm pretty much just the average bloke. This article prompted me to audit my own passwords along the same lines, and I concluded that my style of securing my accounts is taking the middle path when faced with the options of security and convenience. I use a random string as my base password, and then append multiple phrases to it. Now these phrases are something that link to the that particular service account, but the link is so remote, to a fair extent it may be assumed that only I can actually arrive at the phrase, given the service, and to a foreign person, it may seem a to be just a random phrase.
