Taking notes while on the road

Why is it when I start driving, my mind starts an automatic to-do-list? I'm awash with new ideas, things I should have done, things I should be doing etc. and as soon as I stop driving the ideas have gone...?One way that I've managed to capture my ideas for later is by simply using my iphone and Siri. Just call out "Hey Siri - take a note" With notes, Siri will dictate the notes for you into the note application - standard on the IOS device.

Know where you're going before you take off

When we get into the car, we generally know ‘where’ it is we need to go, but often we don’t know ‘how’ to get there. It takes about 20 seconds to open an app, put in an address and press start on a phone, and we no longer need to open up the street directory to find out where we’re going and follow it page by page. Google maps even reads it out for us and can adjust for traffic in real time. Let’s face it, sometimes Google gets it wrong, but pulling over to the side of the road for another 20 seconds to do a check, will mean we can stay focussed on the road and not on...
