There’s some freedom to carrying a notebook with you at all times.
There’s something about the medium that I really like. Maybe it’s the speed? Maybe it’s that it’s so easy to write words and graphics?
It’s a lot more free than writing out words on a page on a phone. Maybe it’s because on a phone it’s linear. You write and you go down and write more…
In a notebook you can come back up, scratch something out, write in the margins, fold the page, and more…
There’s just so much more flexibility in a single page of a notebool than there is when just using the digital medium.
If you want to capture your thoughts you can always upgrade to the paid version of Evernote, take a photo, and Evernote will document it for you.
Whenever I carry a notebook I find it’s so much easier to plan things out.
Always carry a notebook.
