I am a HUGE notebook fan. This shouldn't be a secret to my friends and regular listeners. If you want to keep up more with my notebookery...you can get a glimpse at instagram.com/revchadbrooks. So in this episode I am going to be sharing with you WHY you need to be keeping a notebook, some of the reasons I do and how you can set up your notebook as a modular time/project tracker.
First-I want to thank Brett Byford for his awesome review/rating in iTunes.
Why You Need To Keep A Notebook
My notebook journey has been wild. It all started out with my trying to keep up with life and ministry. I have gone through plenty of different types of notebooks. Here are some of my favorites.
Moleskine (amazon link)
Like many people, Moleskine provided the entry point into keeping a notebook. I used their paperback versions and the soft covers for years. Ultimately, they fell apart quicker than I could use them.
Rhodia (amazon link)
Rhodia makes some great notebooks. The paper is excellent and they have around 59,987 sizes. I use them for quick jots around the house and for sketching out larger things. I don't keep up with them afterwards, just tear the sheets out and throw them away.
Muji (amazon link)
I use this specific size and paper type. They make other options, this is what works for me.
I'm also a big fan of Field Notes Brand, Seedthoughts from Seedbed and Leuchtturm1917.
Why keep a notebook?
- to capture information
- you can build a blank slate for your day and calendar
- keeps information in front of you
- keeps you present (be THE PERSON who is always taking notes! Trust me on this one).
