I guess a lot of us have been there – we stagger out of bed in the morning half asleep and get in the shower. Suddenly we start to have some great business ideas and wish we had a pen and piece of paper.
Now, if I’m entirely honest with you this has never happened to me and I doubt it ever will.
The thought usually going through my mind is more of wouldn’t it be nice to have a bit longer in bed rather than be in the shower getting ready for work.
It seems though that not everyone shares my lack of business enthusiasm in the shower.
Marriott hotels in the US undertook research which indicated that half of business travellers felt that their best ideas came whilst showering.
So why all this talk about showers and ideas?
Well, Marriott have turned some of their shower doors into digital notepads.
Yes, after the door steams up, guests can write their business ideas on it (or for that matter draw a rude picture of their boss if they wanted to) and then their completed creation will be emailed through to them.
In the words of Marriott, so that “their brilliance doesn’t wash away”.
I’m not convinced that I have too many moments of business brilliance in the shower but fair play to Marriott for coming up with a clever use of the shower door.
