If I had a dime for every beautiful blank notebook I’ve found in my clients’ homes and offices…... If I had a dime for each one I possess right now, I’d have about 50 cents. Austin Kleon nails it in a recent post of his. He features Back to Work podcast host Merlin Mann who says: "You start out thinking, “You know the nice thing about paper is I can do whatever with it,” but the irony becomes, “Yeah, but I don’t want to screw up this pretty notebook that I kind of don’t deserve.”
We do deserve the pretty notebooks piling up in our drawers and on our shelves, so let’s start using them. I bought one a few weeks ago that I intended to use to collect the ideas that rush in after I meditate. I commit to start using it this week. What intentions have you had for your notebooks? When do you commit to start filling them? Please share in the comments below.
