I have a confession to make. I love a note book. Not just any notebook, a luxurious notebook. I’ve bought cheap ones, I’ve bought bumper packs of cheap pads, but now I value and love my posh notebooks.
I use thes for meetings, courses, webinars and for making work notes. Now, if I wrote thes notes in a paperback notebook, or on an A4 pad, the notes would disappear, never to be seen again, or sometimes to be looked at years later, when the information is out of date and I can’t remember what I was writing about! With my posh hard back note books however, I tend to look back at my notes and revise the points I made. I also seem to know which to find the notes I made on eg. CIF workshop, or this webinar.
Or this remark that made me smile, from Alistair Bryce Clegg training describing sometimes we get carried away with setting out an araea.
I get handbag sized, so it’s handy, I don’t have to take a huge bag to meetings and courses. The best thing, like any book they look lovely and feel good. They’re nice to write in, they tell a story of how I work and develop my settings. I love them! So please don’t judge me, but go and look for a lovely notebook that is worthy of your jottings!
If anyone’s interested in how much you can fit in this little note book (so well worth the extravagance!)
