I would probably approach it by:
1. Brainstorming, creating thoughts around each idea. 2. Pruning. Deciding which brainstorm ideas to pursue. You could identify these thought using either a Type or Tag depending on what would work best in your existing brain. 3. For each idea to pursue, create child thoughts for actions related to them. Give them a Thought type of "action" or something similar. 4. Use the report to select thoughts with a type of "Action". To narrow down further, use the Time field in the report to narrow down to the dates you created these thoughts for. 5. When the action thoughts are identified, click the report dropdown menu button and choose Add All to Selection 6. This will create a selection on the left hand side. Right click that and choose C opy as Text Outline 7. Paste/Import into your application of choice depending on how it accepts data You will probably want to modify the workflow as you get used to things, but this should work as a starting point.
