Store your Brainstorming Ideas - They May be of Use Later

During brainstorming sessions, varied thoughts come out of the team which can be co related to "ideas" captured earlier. An idea that was conceived a year back, may serve as a baseline for today 's topic.
So keep ideas, store them, so you can retrieve them later and apply them at an appropriate time and in an appropriate setting.

Brainstorming Ideas Saved

I am in an industry that has regular cycles. Busy seasons, regular resets, inventories, and roll out of new products or services. It would make sense to build off of what was brought up last time, instead of having to re-invent the wheel each time this activity has to be planned for.

How I Save Brainstorming Ideas...

During brainstorming if someone comes with a good idea, I have the habit to scribble that idea on a piece of paper with date/time and other references.
I store it in a simple box for later exploration of the ideas. So far this paid great dividends.
I advice others also try to practice this simple innovation.
