You’ve seen them in the stores and may even know someone who carries one, but is a notebook really something that you need to carry with you everywhere you go? We think so! Notebooks offer more flexibility than any other note taking service or device. They are a blank canvas for your thoughts or goals-nothing more and nothing less.


Many prominent thinkers and successful business leaders rely on notebooks in their lives. Here are just some of the things you can use a notebook for:


  • Things to do/a to-do list

  • Situations or things that you observe

  • Questions that you have, either to ask someone or look up later

  • Your reactions to things as they happen

  • Things that you learn about people that you have just met

  • Your daily spending (to balance your budget later)

  • Reviews on restaurants you have been to

  • Your new favorite coffee

  • Things that you need to act on

  • Your weight loss progress

  • Sketches for new ideas

  • A mini-journal to look back on your thoughts in the days, weeks, months, and even years ahead


There is no limit to the number of things that you can use a notebook for. Nothing else gives you the ability to record thoughts the instant they occur and then keeps all of your notes, sketches, and thoughts in one place so that you can easily find them and act on them later. After all, if you neglect to write something down, you are much more likely to forget it later.


As an added benefit, notebooks are thin and flexible, so they are easy to use. You won’t even feel them in your pocket until you need to use it. They also come in different designs and colors for a personal touch. The quality of a notebook can range from functional yet frugal to high end.
