Should I Carry A Pocket Notebook?

Posted on April 22 2016

Paper and Pen are destined for each other, and one without the other just doesn't work. Adding a notebook to your carry is quite easy due to their size and flexibility in a pocket. The addition of A memo book to your back pocket adds a tonne of utility without the bulk. Pocket notebooks are perfect for a variety of purposes:
 
Easy to Carry:
 
Most pocket notebooks consist of around 20/30 sheets, usually with paper covers. Because of this, they are thin enough to fit easily comfortably in a front or back pocket without you noticing it’s there until you need it.
 
Convenience:
 
If you’re already carrying a pen, adding a pocket notebook is the next logical step. Having your personal notes in your back pocket or backpack makes them easily accessible. Never be without a place to write something down again.
 
Organisation:
 
Rather than writing down your thoughts, important mobile numbers, notes and more on scraps of paper - have them all safely consolidated in your back pocket. It's much easier to look back and examine notes when they're all in the same place.
 
Helps you memorise:
 
Writing down notes by hand has been reliably proven to help you retain information. It’s also an important part of The Field Notes Mantra; “I am not noting it down to remember it later, I am noting it down to remember it now.”
 
What advantages does a pocket notebook give me?
 
There are many uses for carrying a notebook. People have been writing stuff down for generations, whether it be observations, individual experiences, or what they have to grab at the local store. Here're a few suggestions on what to write in your notebook:
 
To-Do List:
 
What more reliable place is there than your very own pocket to keep a running list of all that needs to get sorted?
 
Ledger:
 
Follow your daily spending to stick to that budget to help save up for that new knife you’ve been looking at.
 
Journal:
 
Write down a few ideas and observations from each day. It’s a lot of fun and interesting to look back on what you were up to years past on the same day.
 
Documentation:
 
Whether it be your gym progress, weight loss/gain, or tasting notes on your favourite coffees or teas, try keeping a journal of things you desire.
 
Creativity & Inspiration:
 
It’s relaxing to let your creativity free and put pen to paper and see what comes out. Write down passing thoughts, business plans, sketches for a future project, and much more.
