It is almost impossible to think of the same exact sentence the very next morning. It almost impossible to remember the great ideas you've had about how to solve a certain problem.
And I never get up...

This happens to me a lot!! I stay awake on certain nights thinking on physics discussing problems with myself and thinking on the better way to explain something to somebody. And I enjoy it a lot!! I allways seem to have bright ideas at that moment, but at morning I can't remember. I think that's because at late night we seem to think everything we say is bright... Remember we're sleepy... But good luck on your future tasks


I actually have a different approach. Late at night I only formulate the questions. The answers come to me during the night, probably by the miraculous work of my subconsciousness. All I have to do in the morning is put them into practice. Okay, it doesn't work all the time, but it does work occasionally, especially with the big problems that really bother me.

Otherwise you can just keep a notebook next to your bed and write down the ideas you have just before you fall asleep. It's again some border state that could generate useful ideas (naturally you'll have judge their "goodness" in the morning, with a fresh mind).
